The Talk of the Town was Cary Grant's 41st full length feature film. It was also his second film with Jean Arthur.
Grant plays Leopold Dilg, hunted on a trumped-up murder and arson charge.
He hides in Nora Shelley's house (Jean Arthur), which she has just rented to austere law school dean Michael Lightcap (Ronald Colman).
"In Columbia's The Talk of the Town Producer-Director George Stevens successfully manages the ticklish chore of tucking in such strange bedfellows as zany comedy and social significance, rampant melodrama and quiet humor...the film owes much to the expert playing of the three co-stars. Miss Arthur and Grant have had more rewarding roles but play these with customary finesse." - Newsweek
