CHRISTMAS IN JULY

75th Anniversary!

(1940) dir Preston Sturges w/Dick Powell, Ellen Drew, Raymond Walburn, Alexander Carr [67 min; 35mm]
Dick Powell plays Jimmy MacDonald, low man on the totem pole at a coffee company, who dreams of striking it rich by entering every contest possible so that he can marry the girl of his dreams (Drew). When his buddies play a prank and convince him that he’s won the latest contest – coming up with a slogan for a rival coffee company – Jimmy is so elated that he runs out to fulfill his dreams without realizing that he’s treading on thin ice. A delightful early film from the master of sophisticated comedic hijinks, Preston Sturges.
