The More the Merrier (1943)
starring Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea, Charles Coburn, Bruce Bennett
In Washington D.C. during World War II, Connie Milligan does her part to ease the housing shortage by renting out half of her two-bedroom apartment. Looking for a female roommate, she instead rents it to elderly Benjamin Dingle, who finagles his way into Connie's apartment. Benjamin is in town on a short term business trip. The two have a rough start due to their differing personalities - she highly regimented, he seemingly forgetful and overly nosy - but things between them get worse when Benjamin rents out half of his half to Sgt. Joe Carter, who is also looking for short term housing before he gets shipped overseas. Because of the possible look of impropriety, Connie tells no one of her new roommates, especially to her fiancé of 22 months, Charles J. Pendergast, who is a business associate of Benjamin's and who is most concerned about his advancing career path. The wily Benjamin, seeing what is happening around him, does whatever he can to push Connie and Joe together, he who knows that the two are falling in love with each other.
I watched this a few months ago on TCM, for the first time since the Sixties. I'm a big fan of Charles Coburn, and he's absolutely delightful in this movie!Source(s): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036172/
