Tonight's The Night
(original title Happy Ever After)
David Niven ■ Yvonne De Carlo ■ Barry Fitzgerald
The whole village mourns when General O'Leary, owner of a hunting estate in South Ireland, is killed in an accident. His nephew, Jasper O'Leary, takes over the state and soon has aroused the displeasure of all, with the exception of Serena McGluskey, as much a schemer as he is a cad. Led by Thady O'Heggarty, the villagers plot to drive Jasper away. They use the occasion of "O'Leary Night", when the ghost of the first O'Leary walks the halls, to create general chaos.
I stumbled on this movie Sunday evening while surfing youtube looking for something to watch. I mainly chose it because of the lead actors, I've enjoyed each one in several different movies. What a cute movie! It's a fluffy comedy where murder has never been so friendly or so funny.
Take some time to escape from reality and enjoy a movie where the main characters are delightfully despicable and an entire town has murder on its mind... with hilarious results.
