Screwball Comedies

There are quite a few great but smaller screwball comedy lists that I was following so I decided to make one large one for my own personal reference. This list is a work in progress.

Screwball comedies were popular through the 1930s and early to mid-1940s. This list has films from both decades listed in chronological order. It also lists later films that are considered to have brought back elements of the screwball comedy.
