Appointment for Love (1941): Oscar Nominated Film Starring Charles Boyer and Margaret Sullavan


In William A. Seitler’s mildly amusing comedy, the lead stars are the thing. Gallic Charles Boyer and the great American actress Margaret Sullavan play career-driven individuals, a playwright and a doctor respectively, who, despite attraction to each other, spend little time together cultivating their marriage.
Both stars were popular at the time; Boyer was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar in 1938 for “Algiers,” and Sullavan for the Best Actress Oscar in the same year for “Three Comrades.”
