“Ball of Fire” (Samuel Goldwyn, 1941). Eight professors who are ensconced in a New York City mansion writing an enclycopedia get caught up with the girlfriend of a local mobster and hilarity (truly) ensues. Get ready to learn some slang from the 1930s-1940s, too. A classic screwball comedy with a sweet love story to boot. Led by the great Gary Cooper and Barbara Syanwyck, the cast delivers on the delightful script written by Charles Bracett and Billy Wilder. Directed by Howard Hawks. “Before you go, would you, uh…would you yum me just once more?!”
