Every girl should be married film
Every Girl Should Be Married is one of those rare comic delicacies that are always in good season. Out of that venerable theme of the war between the sexes in which the femmes are the guileful aggressors, Don Hartman has fashioned a sparklingly witty comedy of modern manners which will set off a chain reaction of chuckles.

Every Girl Should Be Married (1948)
And she has the target, er, groom picked out: pediatrician Madison Brown. Unfortunately, Dr. Brown is not interested in marriage or in Anabel. But not to worry - Anabel's sure she can outmaneuver any mere male. And she'll employ every ruse, stratagem and ploy in a marriage-minded maiden's bag of tricks to land the elusive American bachelor.
Romantic-comedy icon Cary Grant and film-debuting Betsy Drake team in this frothy, funny paean to postwar domesticity.
The sparkle between the two is delightful - and genuine: Soon after the film premiered they became real-life husband and wife. Sounds like Anabel just may have been right!

This one is about a sweet salesgirl at a large department store who dreams of finding a successful, kind, eligible young man who is interested in family life. Enter Cary Grant who is a baby doctor. He gives a talk to young mothers about rearing their children. She is smitten. Him, not so much. He's interested in holding on to his precious bachelorhood and dating several lovely young ladies.
Grant is good in all his movies as is his costar Betsy Drake. She goes to great lengths to try to snare him. It is all amusing fun and very politically incorrect! He married Betsy Drake in real life.
They also appeared together in "Always Room for One More. I enjoy classic movies so I wasn't disappointed! Truly a good movie!! Anabel Sims Betsy Drake is a year-old working girl who runs into pediatrician Dr. Madison Brown Cary Grant at the magazine rack in a diner. She is immediately smitten with him and decides then and there that she is going to marry him.
The rest of the film shows how she stalks him, lies to him and others , and manipulates people to get Dr. She finds out where he works, eats, and shops and gathers information from the people who work there. She compiles a database of all the things he likes. She lies to him about having a rich and famous boyfriend in a feeble attempt to make him jealous. One of her schemes backfires and she is forced to manipulate her boss, department store owner Roger Sanford Franchot Tone , into a kiss on a crowded sidewalk in hopes of getting Dr.
I could go on, but you get the idea. I found Betsy Drake to be really irritating. Franchot Tone was surprising in his role as a lecherous businessman.
Real cute, and funny. I like the actors. They only appeared together in these two movies. They were married in real life, for 13 years til he messed up during the movie Houseboat Many funny lines and I really enjoyed the movie.
This is so outrageously demeaning of women, not to mention of men. I hate Mr Magoo, too. I'm a big fan of Cary Grant's--but the bottomless, abject stupidity of this film just did me in. I just love this movie!! Yes, it's a little cheesy. Yes, it's a little silly. But, it's just a cute movie!
A cute story of how she plots to hook him Will she get she man? Watch and find out! Oh my goodness, what a funny, silly, movie I thought I wouldn't watch a second time! However, it has this likeable quality, and simpleness that I can't resist! A cute Betsy Drake who later became Grant's wife I think is looking for a husband and sets her sights on Grant!
The hilarity of how she does it and the wholesomeness of the characters, just make one wish for simpler times and values. Every now and then when I want to laugh at love and Betsy's fun character, I must watch this movie again four times so far!! Plus, Grant plays his usual good-looking suave self, I have grown to love! Miss Drake is very busy trying her very best to win over the love of Mr. Grant, and convince him to become her husband one way or another!
Of course, in real life, he did become her husband at one time. Very entertaining film, funny, and enjoyable for all.
