Well, it might as well be Christmas season already, right? The stores have already put out their decorations, and the Hallmark cable channels started playing Christmas movies 24/7 the day after Halloween (not kidding about that). So I'm going to jump into the season by recommending this screwball comedy starring the great Barbara Stanwyck as a single woman in her 30's (the horror!) who works as a columnist giving out homemaking advice to housewives (ala Martha Stewart), a subject that in truth she knows nothing about. So now when her boss wants to bring a war hero to the home of the "best homemaker in America," she's got to put on the show of her life. It's a classic that Stanwyck carries completely with her special brand of streetwise daffiness- it's a good one that should be better known.
