    Well apart from the ones mentioned, I love Easy Living (1937) (which I think is my favourite Jean Arthur film), The Devil and Miss Jones (1941), The Ex-Mrs. Bradford (1936), and The Whole Town's Talking (1935).

    I will add History is Made at Night (1937) - My favorite Jean Arthur film, it's so romantic! She stars with Charles Boyer), The Plainsman (1936) with Gary Cooper where Miss. Arthur plays Calamity Jane, wonderful film, Lady Takes a Chance (1943) a western, co-stars John Wayne as rodeo rider; and Shane (1953) won the Best Picture Oscar, co-stars Alan Ladd, a western and Jean Arthur's final film.

    I agree as well that The Devil and Miss Jones (1941) is a great comedy! with Robert Cummings, S.Z. Sakall also co-stars. I always call him Cuddles!"
