A great screwball comedy… The Bride Came C.O.D. (1941)

The Bride Came C.O.D.Sure it had been done once or twice before, and it was done a dozen times following… but this one is a classic on merit alone.

Davis and Cagney were the top two Warner’s actors at the time and had fought their own respective legal battles with the studio in the years prior, as well as being very good friends. This film catches them at the tops of their game, just being allowed to be silly and have fun in a movie no one really expected much out of. The formula works and though the pacing isn’t the best, hang-in because it’s worth it.
