If the idea of James Stewart masquerading as a gangly Boy Scout leader in oversized pants and Coke-bottle glasses makes you laugh, It’s a Wonderful World awaits! This wisecracking classic scripted by screwball master Ben Hecht (Nothing Sacred, His Girl Friday) stars Stewart and the marvelous Claudette Colbert in their only screen pairing. He’s a private eye on the run from a conspiracy rap in a phony murder case. She’s a dizzy poet he takes hostage…and takes on the adventure of her life to track down the real killer. Naturally, despite constant peril and the PI’s penchant for goofball disguises, romance blooms. Join two iconic stars in a comic world that’s wacky, witty and completely wonderful.
