You Gotta Stay Happy 1948 Comedy Romance
Stars: Joan Fontaine, James Stewart, Eddie Albert
Indecisive heiress Dee Dee Dillwood is pushed into marrying her sixth fiancee, but unable to face the wedding night, she flees into the adjacent hotel room of commercial pilot Marvin Payne, who just wants to sleep. Somehow, she persuades him to take her to California. Her fellow passengers include a chimpanzee, a corpse (in a coffin), an absconding embezzler, and two smoochy newlyweds. Can love be far behind?
You Gotta Stay Happy is a frothy story about runaway heiress Fontaine escaping her stuffy groom for the charms of pilot Jimmy Stewart who is running a shoestring flying service. Stewart’s finesse with this genre shows as does Eddie Albert’s as yet another snappy best friend. Fontaine is more sweet than brittle with a comedic line, but thanks to a great supporting cast like Porter Hall, Roland Young, Percy Kilbride, and a cigar-smoking chimp, the film works well. This is a very entertaining film of its kind with more than a few laughs.
Tagline: It’s Hilarious! It’s Romantic!… and wonderfully wacky!
