Winner of the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, You Can’t Take It With You centers on the Sycamore family, whose members initially seem crazy. After spending a bit of time with these loveable eccentrics, however, audiences conclude that it’s the rest of the world that is mad. The plot centers on the Sycamore daughter’s betrothal to the son of respectable, stick-in-the-mud parents. Director Frank Capra turned the play into a hit film in 1938.
