Jean Arthur: The Shy Comedienne – with Marc Courtade – Jean Arthur was one of Hollywood’s most popular comediennes in the 1930s and ‘40s. She projected a strong, self-confident and outgoing woman. But behind the scenes she was painfully shy, plagued by camera and stage fright. Director Frank Capra cast her in some of her best films: Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, You Can’t Take It With You and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. When her contract ended in 1944, she made only two more films. Arthur returned to the stage, but her chronic insecurity became crippling. Her films remain highly enjoyable and it is a pleasure to remember this actress and her short but memorable career.
