Has anyone ever seen this 1944 romantic comedy?
Her Primitive Man, with Louise Allbritton and Robert Paige in the lead roles, and with supporting roles from character actors Robert Benchley and Edward Everett Horton. I saw this zany comedy twice on television in the 1950s and never saw it again. I keep waiting for it to appear on TCM. I wonder if I would find it as funny today as I did as a child in the 1950s. Heres a description from a movie website:

"In this crazy comedy, a casino worker writes a book about headhunters and finds himself the target of the leader of an anthropological society who is determined to prove that the book is phony. The writer tricks the woman into going on a head-hunting expedition to prove his claims. He dresses up as a headhunter, and allows her to capture and return him to her society for study. Dressed as a native, the writer also manages to secure a $10,000 advance from his publisher to write an expose of the wealthy society-leader's life. Meanwhile, another heiress pursues the writer to collect on a $10,000 debt."

1. That's one I never heard of.
The presence of Robert Benchley and Edward Everett Horton certainly piques my interest!

Anyway, here's the TCM overview:

And in case you want to suggest the movie to TCM, here's the link for that:
