Product Notes

Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray were two of the biggest stars during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Each wildly successful on their own, they came together in seven films showcasing their magnetic on-screen chemistry. Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray: The Romantic Comedy Collection features three of those unforgettable films from their remarkable careers. THE GILDED LILY (1935)This often overlooked comedy gem, marks the first teaming of screen legends Claudette Colbert andFred MacMurray and is the epitome of a New York City urban fantasy. Newspaper reporter Peter Dawes (MacMurray) and stenographer Marilyn David (Colbert), nicknamed Lynn, meet regularly on a park bench sharing popcorn along with their dreams. Their budding romance is soon threatened by a chance meeting between Marilyn and Charles Gray (Ray Milland), an English nobleman visiting America. Marilyns fantasy of landing a handsome millionaire becomes a reality as she is pursued by Charles in a whirlwind courtship, leaving Peter fighting to reclaim his love. When the press learns of the affair, it turns into an international tabloid scandal for everyone involved. Directed by Wesley Ruggles, THE GILDED LILY helped launch the career of Fred MacMurray who would make six more films with Claudette Colbert over the years. THE BRIDE COMES HOME (1936) A screwball comedy set against the backdrop of Chicago during the Depression finds Jeanette Desmereau (Colbert), a socialite left penniless by the stock market crash who takes a job as a writer for a man's magazine, at the center of a romantic triangle. Her two on-again, off-again suitors just happen to be her hard-boiled editor Cyrus Anderson (MacMurray) and the company's wealthy owner, Jack Brist
