‘Easy Living’

The fourth and final film in our “Down With Depression” series of 1930s Depression-themed comedies screens at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Ontario City Library, 215 E. C St.: “Easy Living.”

This 1937 screwball comedy is among my favorite movies. Working girl Mary Smith (Jean Arthur) is riding atop a double-decker bus to work when what should land on her but a mink coat, tossed out a penthouse window by a millionaire mad at his wife’s spendthrift ways. Hijinks, as they say, ensue.

    Re: Fox Theatre being able to attract rock bands with only 2000 seats. Eric Johnson would do it. He’s a guitarist who loves small venues. He’d sell out, too. He’s a great musician with a large fan base. Check out http://www.ericjohnson.com. Have you heard of him? Probably not. LOL
