The chemistry between each character is truly believable, especially that of Tony Kirby (James Stewart) and Alice Sycamore (Jean Arthur). The entire ensemble is one of the best I've ever seen because while each character is drastically different than the next, they all work together on screen in such a way that you can't help but smile.

I have seen the stage ...
