Favourite screwball comedy movies

Launched in the mid-1930s, screwball comedies were characterized by “satire of American society, romantic conflicts , battles of the sexes, sight gags, sarcasm, plot twists, verbal duels and witty dialogues”. But, at the end, all the conflicts are happily resolved. I love this kind of movies because it is funny, joyful, punchy, wacky and there is romance. The witty banter and the arguments between the characters are delightful! In addition, there were wonderful actors and actresses such as Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, William Powell, Jean Arthur, Claudette Colbert, Carole Lombard and Katharine Hepburn. Frank Capra, Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder are my favourite directors.
