I found " The Sainted Sisters " to be a pretty and enjoyable tiny comedy with lots of the amusement from Barry Fitzgerald, a sly old rascal who supports the two gold-digging sisters reform their ways. Veronica Lake and Joan Caulfield enjoy the two turn-of-the the century sisters who are on the run after relieving an gullible old millionaire out of $ 25.000. Trying to escape to Canada, they are caught in a storm and seek shelter in a tiny city in Maine. The shelter they seek is the home of Fitzgerald who has peeked through the keyhole and sees the women hanging up the rain soaked cash to dry. Already suspicious of the two, he agrees to allow them stay for the night. Next morning as the women wish to be on their way, Fitzgerald questions them about the money, testing dumb, Veronica says him to keep their suitcase while the women walk to city to search a horse and buggy. Puzzled as to why he can't search the cash in the suitcase, Veronica has it hidden under her bustle, he follows them around town, finally picking up his email he also picks up the sheriffs fresh wanted poster of the two girls. Meanwhile the women have secured a ride from George Reeves, but Fitzgerald intervenes in time, confronts them with the wanted poster and the women are blackmailed into staying, with Fitzgerald holding their cash and distributing it to the needy townspeople. During the course of the storyline George Reeves falls in love with both women as does the whole grateful town. This movie really shines with the fine cast of hero actors, William Demarest, Beulah Bondi, and Chills Wills. Veronica Lake is extremely nice as the more cunning of the two sisters, along with Joan Caulfield they are both funny and fetching to watch in their period costumes being slyly tricked by Fitzgerald to support the needy with their money. This really difficult to search movie is a light-hearted storyline and entertaining watching the veteran actors of the day. Delicious also for fanatics of Veronica Lake .
Having been seen mostly in modern seductive clothing, getting a gander at Veronica Lake in period costumes is quite a switch from those Alan Ladd movie noirs that she had become well known for. Cast along with softer looking Joan Caulfield as two Fresh York Town con-artists on the run from being nearly caught in their recent receive rich fast scheme, the two sisters stop off in a tiny city near the Canadian border where they hide their loot that somehow ends up getting distributed to the needy people much to their horror and the bitterness of city matron Beulah Bondi.A struggling widow prays for a cow and finds a cow; A farmer about to be dispossessed finds cash under his door. A young man who wants to learn how to enjoy the trombone is given the cash for the instrument. Lake and Caulfield at first are furious when they search out that the old rascal who found them hiding in his farmhouse (Barry Fitzgerald) found their stash of money and knowing their secret decided to test it like Robin Hood to support the poor. Bondi puts up $15,000 of her own cash to support the city on the promise that Lake and Caulfield will do the same. But Lake has concepts of her own and that means finding Bondi's hidden powerful box and skipping city with double of what they had before.Certainly the premise is outlandish and absurd, but it is presented in such an entertaining method with a load of famous hero performers-William Demarest, "I Love Lucy's" Kathryn Card, Chill Wills among them. Future "Superman" George Reeves is the city character who becomes enamored of both sisters and causes Caulfield to go soft. Bondi's mean-spirited matron is one of many embittered characters she's played, but she allows a several moments of sweetness and light to creep in her character, reminding me of the kindly mothers she's played more often than the meaner ones. However, it's the sprightly Fitzgerald who steals the movie with that sly twinkle in his eye that wins over your compassion. So even by a stretch of the imagination, this is a winning comedy with a large heart that shows atonement of the two sisters who learn more in a short period of time about humanity than an whole lifetime in the large city.
Sisters Veronica Lake (Letty) and Joan Caulfield (Jane) are bad-ass con merchants who fleece boys of their cash and then skip town. Weirdly, I had just watched a movie named "Larceny" from the same year (1948) a week prior to seeing this film. It has exactly the same premise with John Payne and Dan Duryea as the bad-ass con merchants who fleece victims of their cash and skip town. And check this, Joan Caulfield is also in that effort although her role in that movie is one of a victim. Here she is part of the bad-girl duo. Other difference is that "Larceny" is a crime thriller whilst "The Sainted Sisters" is a comedy. And both movies are as enjoyable as every other. So, the sisters are on the run and take shelter in the house of Barry Fitzgerald (Robbie) who knows what they are up to. Can the women create it across the Canadian border to freedom?The movie works as a comedy in that the comedy isn't slapstick or dated, tiresome screwball nonsense. It is now funny and is driven by humerous cases instead of characters shouting over every another or falling over in obvious pratfalls. I was worried when I saw William Demarest in the cast but I have to give him credit in this as he only does one unfunny pratfall that I can remember. Barry Fitzgerald is a bit hard to understand at times but he drives the movie along. The another powerful characters are Lake Veronica, the town's wealthy Beulah Bondi (Hester) who is one mean girl dressed in black, and, surprisingly, the usually appalling Demarest as the town's sheriff. You receive comedy moments and a morality lesson for the two sisters although the romance thread is a bit hard to take. No way.
