Over the Moon (1939)

over-the-moon-movie-poster-1939-1020701442Well-acted film with scrappy dialogue starring Merle Oberon as a far-more-charming-than-anyone-named-“Merle Oberon”-has-any-right-to-be young woman who suddenly comes into unexpected wealth. The film is a hidden gem for those looking for old-school portrayals of intelligent, self-possessed, sexually-empowered women fully able to set the course of their own lives.
