Talk of the Town 1942 Cary Grant Jean Arthur Comedy Romance
Stars: Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Ronald Coleman
The Talk of the Town puts visiting law professor Ronald Colman in a delicate situation. He’s rented a cottage for some peace and quiet before going before a Senate committee dealing with his nomination to the Supreme Court. But things are anything but peaceful in the town of Lorchester, Massachusetts.
The factory owned by Charles Dingle has burned down, arson is suspected and Cary Grant in an unusual working class role is the suspected arsonist. He’s a man of radical opinions in the town so he’s a convenient suspect. As the factory was the main employer in the town you can imagine that folks are crying for blood.
Which brings an escaped Cary to that same house that Jean Arthur has rented to Colman.
Though there are some amusing moments from all three of the stars, The Talk of the Town was more serious than dramatic. For example, Grant challenges Colman to come down out of the ivory tower he’s been living in and apply his high minded principles to real life. When he does Colman does it with a vengeance and it brings down a whole lot of Lorchester’s leading citizens.
