Twentieth Century

Twentieth Century is oft-cited as one of the first "screwball" comedies, but by modern standards it's a pretty sedate movie. My biggest question was whether Carole Lombard and John Barrymore are terrible over-actors or whether they are carefully playing terrible over-actors. Either way, there's a lot of terrible over-acting going on.
