Newt's John Wayne Site
Without Reservations (1946)
John Wayne and Claudette Colbert are a double delight in this playful romantic comedy. Colbert plays Kit Madden, a novelist who is heading to Hollywood to turn her best seller about a handsome pilot into a film. On the train she meets a real-life Marine pilot (John Wayne), and thinks he is the perfect man to portray her screen hero, except he thinks the whole thing "is a lot of hooey." Their comedic rapport becomes more captivating with one misadventure after another as they make their way cross-country. Adding to the fun are surprise walk-ons from stars like Jack Benny, Cary Grant, Louella Parsons as herself, and director Mervyn LeRoy.
Starring John Wayne, Claudette Colbert, Don DeFore, Anne Triola, and Miss Louella Parsons. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy.
