LUCY'S MOVIE GUIDE
Having a Wonderful Time (1938)
(featuring Lucille Ball as Miriam)
A young woman heads for New York's beautiful Catskills for a fun summer of much needed rest and relaxation and instead finds true romance in this lively comedy.
Office worker Teddy (Ginger Rogers) tries to get over a love affair turned sour by vacationing at a summer mountain resort. She pretends to be more cultured and sophisticated than she really is, but her act is challenged by a handsome waiter named Chick (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.).
She also befriends Miriam (Lucille Ball) and Henrietta (Eve Arden), whose screwball personalities prevent Teddy from getting too full of herself. As everyone pursues romance, the resort soon becomes a hotbed of drama.
Special Notes: The film marks the film debut of beloved comedian Red Skelton.
