Rosalind Russel, one of the greatest comedic actors ever stars in this double feature. In SHE WOULDN'T SAY YES, she portrays a psychiatrist. I could do an entire feminist analysis of the script, but it's fun to watch so just enjoy it. Written by Virginia Van Upp, whom deserves a blog entry of her own: what a career!

Attention Hollywood: watch MY SISTER EILEEN,  and take notes. This film has it all: story, characters, performance. Observe how economically it's photographed and how little editing there is. I'm no expert on the screwball comedy genre, but if this it it, I want more!
