As I was compiling my top ten comedies and dramas, I kept coming across films that seemed to fit both genres and in doing so fit in neither. I looked up some of them and found that they were listed under the category of comedy-dramas, that is, a movie that "contains elements of comedy films, in addition to being a drama." Therefore, I had to make a top ten list so they wouldn't be left out :)
1. Forsaking All Others (1934) - Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, Robert Montgomery
2. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) - James Stewart & Jean Arthur
3. Meet John Doe (1941) - Gary Cooper & Barbara Stanwyck
4. The Whole Town's Talking (1942) - Edward G. Robinson & Jean Arthur (more like a crime-comedy...)
5. Once Upon a Honeymoon (1942) - Cary Grant & Ginger Rogers
6. Going My Way (1944) - Bing Crosby, Barry Fitzgerald
7. Miracle on 34th Street (1947) Maureen O'Hara & John Payne, Edmund Gwenn, Natalie Wood
8. Sabrina (1954) - Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, William Holden
9. Mister Roberts (1955) - Henry Fonda, Jack Lemmon, William Powell, James Cagney
10. The Yellow Rolls-Royce (196) - Rex Harrison, George C. Scott, Shirley MacLaine, Ingrid Bergman, Omar ShariffWhat are your favorite comedy-dramas? Do you like them better than pure comedies?
