VERY GOOD 1941 b/w film centered around workers attempting to organize at a very wealthy owner's department store. Fun plot developments when the owner goes to work there undercover to discover what is going on.
Don't think I've ever seen female lead Jean Arthur before. Fun to see charming Spring Byington in a more developed role than she usually was given. Charles Coburn and Bob Cummings were good, too.
The Coney Island crowded beach double date scene was particularly good.

Loved this movie! Not about the devil. Funny!

A really warm and lighthearted Capra-esque pre-war comedy, brimming with innocence and sweetness. Jean Arthur and Charles Coburn were adorable.

“The Devil and Miss Jones," a 1941 film, is one of the funniest films that I have seen in the last year. The only thing funnier, is that in the seventies it was often confused with a highly rated porno film entitled “The Devil in Miss Jones.” There is absolutely no relationship between the two films, but I suspect that the producers of the porno thought it was clever to name its film similarly to “The Devil and Miss Jones.” Jean Arthur, Charles Coburn, Robert Cummings, Edmund Gwen, and Spring Byington are all excellent in this film.
