"If You Could Only Cook" (1935)

A charming Depression-era screwball comedy. Down on her luck, Jean Arthur meets the always debonair Herbert Marshall on a park bench. She badly needs a job and they hatch a plan to answer a want ad for a maid/butler at a Long Island mansion. His secret? He's really the billionaire owner of a  major automobile company searching for that ineffable 'something different' that only characters in the movies seek. Wanna bet by the last reel he finds it in her arms? Some genuine laughs and the star turn romantic chemistry carry this cream puff premise over the  finish line.
