I love old films, and I watch a lot of them. Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood, Al Pacino, and Montgomery Clift mean a lot to me.
For a little bit of the film's runtime, I didn't understand the relatively low Letterboxd average. Then as the film progressed and progressed I completely understood. I mostly enjoyed Kitty Foyle, but there are a multitude of problems throughout. I think with several (and I mean several) rewrites this could have been a really fantastic film.
Ginger Rogers is quite good, so I understand her Oscar win, but this definitely is a "watch for the performance" kind of film. Her…

William Holden and Audrey Hepburn are absolutely amazing together in this and carry the film very well. Holden plays screenwriter Richard Benson who procrastinated writing his screenplay for weeks so he hires secretary Gabrielle Simpson, played by Hepburn, to help.

Midnight is one of those movies that makes zero sense and that's what makes it work perfectly. There is a great balance of heart and humor throughout the entire runtime. Some moments/lines aren't the best but you can't expect a perfect film in a modern context from 1939.
I feel like this is a great movie to go in not knowing really anything about the plot. Every turn is a wonderful surprise. Don Ameche was super charming too--I knew I'd…
