Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture

When a charming fugitive, a beautiful teacher and a stuffy law professor are to become roommates, their unconventional relationship is suddenly The Talk Of the Town in this madcap romantic comedy. When accused arsonist Leopold Dilg (Academy Award winner Cary Grand, Honorary Award 1970) escapes jail, he hides out in the home of his friend Nora (Jean Arthur). Posing as a gardener, Dilg teams up with Nora to convince her summer tenant, Supreme Court Candidate Michael Lightcap (Academy Award winner Ronald Colman, Best Actor in a Leading Role, A Double Life, 1948), that Dilg was framed. The zaniness never stops as the three of them dodge the cops, try to snag the real crooks and discover along the way that both men have fallen for Nora. But who has captured Nora's heart? Find out with The Talk Of The Town, a sparkling gem from Hollywood's golden Age of Comedy, nominated for several Academy Awards including Best Picture.
