Miracle Man
When an actor's bio claims 14,000 performances to his credit, you rather expect the fellow to have some good stories. And Eddie Bracken doesn't disappoint. In anticipation of his appearance at a screening of Preston Sturges' The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, Bracken talks about Sturges, Betty Hutton, Hollywood, and hitchhiking.

Fast, Cheap, & Out of Control
While the rest of the nation was rallying around the flag, screenwriter and director Sturges was spitting out a series of rapid-fire Hollywood comedies that showed untruth, injustice, inequality, corruption, chicanery, and illicit sex running rampant across this land from sea to shining sea.

The Hudsucker Proxy
This Coen brothers film is a goofy ode to genres and eras gone by. Although it's a little less “weird” than much of their work, it still retains a mannered and quirky air with performances that walk a line between realism and understated surreality.

The Miracle of Morgan's Creek
This is the master of subversion's most subversive work, a wartime romantic comedy built around a small-town sweetheart getting drunk and knocked up by a soldier she can't remember. Sturges covers himself by saying his heroine got married before she did the horizontal bop, but even so, the plot is a radical departure for the time.

Unfaithfully Yours
Had Hollywood not balked for nearly a decade in letting its first screenwriting superstar direct one of his stories, 'Unfaithfully Yours' might today be recorded as Sturges' directorial debut from 1932 / 33. Instead, it remains the modern Moliere's final treasure.

Although it’s extremely funny in bursts, Judd Apatow's new comedy flirts once too often with schmaltz before toppling into melodrama in its third act.
