Mildly interesting with Jean Arthur being fabulous but no one else really matching up. Male lead seemed terribly dull. Maybe it's just because I find Jean Arthur incredibly gorgeous.;

1943's The More the Merrier has some fun with the war-time housing shortage by having Jean Arthur pick up a couple of roommates, quite against her will, and letting the laughs and romance dominate her small apartment. She had a spare room, wanted to do the patriotic thing, but was expecting to share the space with another girl. Charles Coburn plays an eccentric old millionaire who needs a place to stay, and he benignly get what he wants, then impishly sublets half his room to Joel McCrae and - the imp! - remorselessly plays Cupid for the rest of the film. It gets a little steamy, the period's censors might say scandalous, but director George Stevens apparently kept it all within the bounds of decency. As a sexy romance, it works BECAUSE they can't go too far. As a comedy, it works, despite a couple of moments of broad physical humor contrasting with the film's normal subtlety, largely because of Jean Arthur. She's terrific in this, playing off the juvenile men who invade her space and later her life. Her sliding double ALONE is worth the price of admission.
