    Her two best films are 42nd Street and Shall We Dance. Especially 42nd Street where she’s Any-time Annie.

    “She only said “no” once and that was because she didn’t hear the question.”

      I’m not sure what my favourite GR film is, though I’m curious about Kitty Foyle (1940), which i’ve yet to see.
