Another of Capra’s successful collaborations with the screenwriter Robert Riskin, the film was based on a popular stage play by George S Kaufman and Moss Hart, and won Capra his third Oscar for Best Director. When a girl from a family of eccentric freethinkers (Arthur) falls for the son of a conservative banker (James Stewart), the stage is set for a meet-the-in-laws dinner across a social divide. Wrestling, ballet, fireworks and police raids ensue.
