Ellen Drew in Christmas in July

Christmas in July

1940 NR

Lovesick and gullible office clerk Jimmy MacDonald (Dick Powell) enters a coffee slogan contest with the hope that he'll win $25,000 and the heart of the woman he wants to marry. Jimmy's practical-joking co-workers think it's a hoot to make him believe he's won the grand prize, but when the humble clerk begins living life to the fullest, comedic chaos ensues. Director Preston Sturges's screwball romp is simply lighthearted fun.
