Christmas in July *
Christmas in July cemented Sturges’ reputation as the master of screwball comedy with an exuberant romance about a naïve clerk who is tricked into thinking he’s won a $25,000 prize. Dick Powell stars as the go-getting guy who takes his sweetheart on an extravagant Christmas shopping trip a few months early, only to see his spending spree turn slapstick when he learns it is all a practical joke.
