TODAY'S NUGGET: The Palm Beach Story (1942) - Funny Character Names

[Quick Summary: A wife runs away so her husband won't suffer financial ruin, but he chases after her.]

[NOTE: The next two chronological scripts are reviewed here: Lady Eve, Sullivan's Travels.]

Sturges uses funny names.

I can't stop thinking about:

- Mr. McKeewie
- The Weenie King
- John D. Hackensacker III
- Snoodles
- Captain McGlue

WHAT I'VE LEARNED: Weird names are memorable.
