Rain Or Shine
Rated
An odd little comedy - both fey and surprisingly bitter - from Frank Capra's pre-It Happened One Night Columbia years. It shows a circus full of charming eccentrics (in some ways they prefigure the Vanderhof family in Capra's 1938 You Can' Take It With You) staving off the mercenary encroachment of a band of entrepreneurs intent on taking them over. Vaudevillians Joe Cook and Dave Chasen (later Chasen's Restaurant) contribute a number of their famous patter routines; the ending, suggests Elliott Stein, is a bleak, absurdist coda worthy of Samuel Beckett. Definitely out of the ordinary; a buff's delight.
