Movies starring Edward Everett Horton

The Gay Divorcee

The Gay Divorcee (1934)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

Coming at a time when "gay" still predominantly meant fun and happy "The Gay Divorcee" was the second movie to feature Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Adapted from a stage production which Fred Astaire also appeared in "The G...

Sing and Like It

Sing and Like It (1934)   3/53/53/53/53/5

72 mins     Comedy      

"Sing and Like It" is the sort of old movie that you have to be in the right frame of mind to watch, an almost forgiving mind because of one joke which is repeated again and again. That joke is Zasu Pitts singing, although it...

Top Hat

Top Hat (1935)   4/54/54/54/54/5

101 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

Having not been born till the second half of the 20th century I can only assume that audiences enjoyed Fred and Ginger in "The Gay Divorcee" so much that the studio decided to try and recapture the magic with another musical ...

Shall We Dance

Shall We Dance (1937)   3/53/53/53/53/5

109 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

"Shall We Dance" was the 7th Fred & Ginger collaboration and to be honest by this point in their movies together you pretty much know exactly what you are going to get. As such we have a very slim storyline which mixes comedy...


Holiday (1938)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

It's quite sad that it takes a movie over 70 years old to put a smile on my face and keep it there from start to finish but that is the case of "Holiday" or "Free to Live" as it is also known. More remarkably is that "Holiday...

Here Comes Mr. Jordan

Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941)   3/53/53/53/53/5

94 mins     Comedy, Fantasy, Romance      

I first became aware of "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" back in around 2002, and like others I would imagine that they learnt about it because they saw Chris Rock's remake "Down to Earth". I also became a wear at the same time of War...

The Magnificent Dope

The Magnificent Dope (1942)   3/53/53/53/53/5

83 mins     Comedy      

The Magnificent Dope: Henry Fonda stars as Tad Page, the small town kid who ends up in the city where the slick Dwight Dawson (Don Ameche) tries to take advantage of him...

Lady on a Train

Lady on a Train (1945)   4/54/54/54/54/5

94 mins     Comedy, Crime      

If like me you are not overly fussed by film-noir and are even slightly put off by the term then give "Lady on a Train" a try as whilst technically film-noir it is also a wonderful crime comedy which will have you smiling fro...
