The Egg & I {1947}

Well, to take a break from all these Mickey Rooney movie reviews. How about some Colbert & MacMurray? Sounds good. Wonderful! :) 

The Egg & I is the story of a young married couple, who are city slickers, move to the country to start a chicken farm. You will follow their ups and downs of chicken farmers, and just young married life in general.

Trivia -
On May 5, 1947 Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray starred in radio version of this film that was broadcast on the Lux Radio Theatre. Click here to listen (Right click to download mp3).
This was the sixth of seven movies that paired Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray. 

I loved this movie! It was quite funny and full of laughs. Also I love the pairing of Colbert & MacMurray. This is the first film I've seen them together and I loved them acting together!

If you haven't seen this film, you must. As it is sure to bring a smile to your face.
