“The Palm Beach Story”

None of it was filmed in Palm Beach, of course, but Preston Sturges’ 1942 screwball comedy has everything you’d expect from Palm Beach: Multiple marriages, multiple divorces, misidentified identical twins, lost luggage, a preposterous investment scheme and, of course, John D. Hackensacker III, the richest man in the world. No wonder it scored 100 percent on the Rotten Tomatoes rating.
