Though Connie is engaged to a nice respectable lawyer (Wendell Corey), Steve’s appearance in her world shakes up her well-structured life.

The Man Who Came To Dinner showing at The Library of Congress Packard Campus

THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER (Warner Bros., 1942)
When the acerbic and nationally popular radio personality Sheridan Whiteside slips on the icy front steps of a provincial Ohio businessman's home at Christmastime and ends up in a wheelchair, he and his entourage take over the house indefinitely. Monty Woolley recreates his Broadway role as Whiteside in this delightful adaptation of the George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart play. Bette Davis gives a sympathetic and likeable performance as Whiteside’s assistant Maggie in one of her rare appearances in a comedy. Directed by William Keighley, the film also features Richard Travis, Ann Sheridan, Jimmy Durante and Mary Wickes as Nurse Preen in her hilarious film debut.
