Christmas in July - 1940 ***
As another viewer quite rightly pointed out, this has all the makings of a 'B' not an 'A' movie. Dick Powell is average, this time playing an office clerk who has dreams of winning a huge amount of money and being able to marry his girlfriend and give her a good life. Several of his colleagues overhear his wishes and decide to play a prank on him, sending him a letter pretending to be from the winning company. However events do not go as they planned.
It's not a bad film, and I am trying to see all of Preston Sturges movies, but I can't honestly say that this is one of his best.
