The Shopworn Angel

The Shopworn Angel
Released Date: July 15, 1938
Director: H.C. Potter
Actors: Margaret Sullavan, James Stewart, Walter Pidgeon, Hattie McDaniel, Nat Pendleton, Alan Curtis, Sam Levene, Eleanor Lynn, and Charles D. Brown

     This movie is based around WW1, and around Bill Pettigrew (James Stewart). He is training in New York and is almost hit by a car. The woman driving, Daisy Heath (Margaret Sullavan) is a popular actress and is very rude in her behavior towards Bill at first. She is dating Sam Bailey (Walter Pidgeon) who could not be more wrong for her. You can tell this early on in the movie, actually, when you first see them together. Bill wants his army buddies to believe he is dating this actress, so he asks Daisy if she would pretend to be his girlfriend. She agrees, and they pretend away. Meanwhile, sparks fly. But Daisy is already in a pretty big relationship with Sam. What will happen? James Stewart shines again, and this time in military uniform!!!
