2. And three of the best (and best-known) are on Monday night.

I mean, of course, Woman of the Year, Pat and Mike, and Adam's Rib. That last one is particularly outstanding.

I'd also give a shout-out for Without Love, which is lesser-known, rather quirky wartime romantic comedy, but watchable and entertaining.
