The Talk of the Town

1942 Rated NR 118 mins

The dashing Cary Grant stars as Leopold, an activist wrongly imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. To avoid execution, Leopold breaks out of jail and takes a job as a gardener for a teacher named Nora (Jean Arthur). Nora's other houseguest (Ronald Colman) is a legal scholar who learns Leopold's true identity. His two new friends end up helping him find justice -- and perhaps even love. The film earned seven Oscar nods, including Best Picture.
