This wild tale of wacky wedlock from PRESTON STURGES (The Lady Eve) takes off like a rocket and never lets up. JOEL MCCREA (Sullivan’s Travels) and CLAUDETTE COLBERT (It Happened One Night) play Tom and Gerry, a married New York couple on the skids, financially and romantically. With Tom hot on her trail, Gerry takes off for Florida on a mission to solve the pair’s money troubles, which she accomplishes in a highly unorthodox manner. A mix of the witty and the utterly absurd, The Palm Beach Story is a high watermark of Sturges’s brand of physical comedy and verbal repartee, featuring sparkling performances from its leads as well as hilarious supporting turns from RUDY VALLEE and MARY ASTOR as a brother and a sister ensnared in Tom and Gerry’s high jinks.

Special Edition Features:

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
  • New interview with writer and film historian James Harvey about director Preston Sturges
  • New interview with actor and comedian Bill Hader about Sturges
  • Safeguarding Military Information, a 1942 World War II propaganda short written by Sturges
