100 Years of Paramount Pictures: Easy Living
1937/b&w/88 min.

Scr: Preston Sturges; dir: Mitchell Leisen; w/ Jean Arthur, Edward Arnold, Esther Dale, Luis Alberni, Ray Milland, Franklin Pangborn.

Millionaire Edward Arnold tosses the fur coat his dilettante wife has just bought off the roof. It lands on secretary Jean Arthur, and as she wears it through the streets of Manhattan, her newfound fur changes her life—for better and for worse. Ray Milland is Arnold’s ungrateful son. And the spectacular cast, many of whom would go on to appear in films directed by Easy Living screenwriter Preston Sturges, includes Franklin Pangborn as a gossipy salesclerk. Pangborn delivers—with hissy aplomb—one of the best lines ever in a film: “When there’s smoke, there’s usually . . . somebody smoking.”
