George Stevens‘s self-produced Penny Serenade (1941) is a film about a happy marriage. A terrible contingency causes the marriage to nosedive, but maybe, just maybe, all will be well again. PS is lovely but, alas, sentimental. It ends up being a heart-warmer and nothing more. All the same, one admires Irene Dunne and Cary Grant for their likability and Stevens for his directorial control.
