Welcome to Vintage Powder Room Cinema!  This week’s feature is TOPPER [1937] starring Constance Bennett, Cary Grant and Roland Young.  I’m a Cary Grant fan (who isn’t?) and this film is a delight.


TCM says:

Middle-aged New York banker Cosmo Topper’s wife Clara insists that they live a staid, well-ordered existence, the complete antithesis of bank owners George and Marion Kerby, who live for fun and excitement. After a board of directors meeting, the Kerbys try to convince Topper to stop doing what his wife says and “live.” On the drive back to their country home, just after Marion says that she wants to do a good deed and make Topper over, George loses control of their speeding car and they crash. Though they feel all right, George and Marian quickly realize that they are transparent and, in fact, died in the crash.
