Suggestions: Lighthearted Romantic Color Code Comedies

Dear Readers,

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!

Yours Hopefully,

Tiffany Brannan

  1. Now that you mention it, most of the color Code films that I’ve seen are musicals! The only one that I recall at the moment that might slightly qualify as a romantic comedy is The Inspector General (1946), which stars Danny Kaye. He sings a few songs to amuse people (and one to himself, I believe), but I definitely wouldn’t call it a musical. I reviewed it on my blog if you want to know more about it.

    I don’t know if that helps you, but it is the only one that I can think of! Good luck with your article!

    • I know! One never realizes that until trying to think of films! Thank you for the suggestion. I have heard of that movie but haven’t seen it yet. I’ll have to watch it! I appreciate your trying to help! I’ll give that one some consideration.

      Happy Independence Day!

  2. Thanks for the invitation, Tiffany! FYI, the Harvest Worship blog is no longer active. I started it several years ago when I was on staff at a church called Harvest, for the congregation, but it never really went anywhere. However, I would be happy to email you a couple of reviews this month. I’ve got several new films (new to me, anyway) in our watchlist so this would actually be a good opportunity to watch and reflect on them. Blessings, and have a great 4th!

  3. I would recommend “Road to Bali” with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope (1952). This is available for free on Amazon Prime and my daughter and I thought it was hilarious! Crosby and Hope did a number of “Road to…” films during the Breen era, but this is the only one I’ve seen and, as far as I know, the only one available for free on Prime. Some fun cameos in it, too.
