Image from the film Topper
Produced by Hal Roach for MGM, Topper, adapted from a Thorne Smith novel, is the first in a series of elegant comedies that center on a wealthy, fun-loving couple who, through the fate of a car accident, become ghosts. The Kerbys (Constance Bennent and Cary Grant) were stockholders in a bank ran by Cosmo Topper. While they kill time as ghosts in ‘limbo’ they pledge to liberate the stuffy Topper. Tensions flare when playful Marion Kerby takes too personal of interest in the task. Hoagy Carmichael is conveniently on-hand to introduce the film’s signature tune, Old Man Moon. 35mm preservation print courtesy of UCLA Film and Television Archive. (35mm presentation)
