I am trying to think of films in a certain category, so I decided to ask my readers if you can think of any. I am trying to think of lighthearted comedy/romance Code movies that are in color. I am planning a future Epoch Times article about a good first Code film for romantic comedy film fans, so I am trying to choose a film as a topic. The movie has to be in color, since I think that is more accessible to non-classic film fans than black and white. Now that I have begun this project, I have realized that most Code color movies I have seen are musicals! Since I already wrote about a good first musical to watch, this movie can’t be a musical. The movies which aren’t musical are historic/costume pieces. The few remaining films are dramas. After eliminating all these other categories, I could only think of one movie I had watched! That film is Home in Indiana (1944). After reviewing some actors’ filmography, I found one other movie which fit the category that I haven’t seen yet, Mother is a Freshman (1949). This sounds like a really cute movie, so I thinking of watching and reviewing that. However, there must be dozens if not hundreds of movies in this category of which I haven’t heard or which I am just forgetting. Do you know of any such films? Remember, they have to be American films released between July of 1934 and 1954.
Thank you for your suggestions!
