IA #86: Molly and Me (1945)

 Molly and Me (1945) on IMDb

I’m always looking for comedies to include in the Internet Archive Top 100, and this is one of them. Molly and Me is a fun little movie about an actress who has to resort to housekeeping and the effect she has on her new boss.

According to IMDb, novelist Frances Marion wrote parts for Marie Dressler when she discovered her down on her luck and ready to accept a housekeeping job. The novel, Molly, Bless Her, the basis of this film, was Marion’s view of what might have happened if Dressler had accepted a job as housemaid.
