Today my friend J.L. Petersen shares with us her favorite romantic comedy. J.L. Petersen is new to the author circuit. Her first book, Love in a Moment, was released in early 2016 as book 1 in the Rocky Mountain Romance Series. Visit her on Facebook.
1. Favorite Romantic Comedy.
I have so many but among my favorites is My Favorite Wife with Cary Grant and Irene Dunn
2. Why is this your go to movie?
Because of the humor mixed in with true love. I am a lighthearted romantic instead of the brooding Heathcliff type.
3. What memories does it bring up when you watch it?
There are no specific memories. Mostly it just makes me smile and feel good.
4. Are your characters in your books molded after these movie characters?
Not exactly or at least not yet. But both characters exuded class and a great sense of humor at the same time. I try to find a little of both with the characters I create.
5. Do you have a favorite quote from this movie?
Sorry no specific quote but my favorite scene is when Irene Dunn, whose character was shipwrecked for five years is rescued and comes home to find her husband declared her legally dead and remarried that same day. She chased him to the hotel he's taken his new wife. When she see's him enter the elevator with his new bride she runs over trying to catch his attention. Cary Grant, after entering the elevator turns and as the door starts to slide close he sees her. He gets the most astonished look on his face and slowly leans sideways following the movement of the door as it closes.
