The Egg and I
Screen legends Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray star as newlyweds whose love is put to the test on their wedding day in the classic comedy, The Egg and I. Just after she has said "I do," Betty (Colbert) learns that her new husband, Bob (MacMurray), has left his white-collar job with plans to raise chickens on a rustic farm located miles away from civilization. Betty tries to make the best of her situation in their ramshackle house, but never-ending repairs, rain, irritable livestock and a seductive neighbor (Louise Allbritton) do not make it easy! There is never a dull moment in this heart-warming comedy that also introduced the beloved characters of Ma and Pa Kettle (Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride).
Ma & Pa Kettle
In Ma and Pa Kettle, the lovable hillbilly duo from The Egg and I return in their own starring film which launched a wildly popular franchise. Ma still can't remember the names of their 15 children and Pa still avoids doing anything he can put off. In this hilarious adventure, the clan trades their broken down farmhouse for an ultra-modern home that Pa wins by dreaming up a slogan for a tobacco company. When jealous neighbors accuse Pa of plagiarizing his winning slogan and the sheriff shows up to evict them, Ma stands her ground with a shotgun and some good old-fashioned spunk.
