Casanova Brown is a romantic comedy film from 1944, directed by Sam Wood and starring Gary Cooper, Teresa Wright, and Frank Morgan. The movie tells the story of a young couple, Casanova Brown (Gary Cooper) and Madge Ferris (Teresa Wright), who find themselves unexpectedly married after a night of passion. The hitch: Casanova, a struggling novelist, is already engaged to a socialite named Isabel (Anita Louise).

The movie opens with Casanova rushing to the hospital to be with Madge after receiving a telegram that she's in labor. He arrives at the hospital moments after the baby has been born and learns that Madge is not married, prompting the hospital staff to urge him to marry her so that the baby doesn't have to be labeled a bastard. Casanova agrees and they are married on the spot, but things quickly become complicated when he learns that he is already engaged to Isabel.

As Casanova tries to extricate himself from his engagement, he finds that his attempts are met with a series of comic misadventures. He also discovers that he has fallen truly in love with Madge and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. This is complicated by the fact that Madge is determined to raise the baby on her own if Casanova won't commit to their marriage.

Throughout the movie, Casanova finds himself in various absurd and humorous situations, including hiding from Isabel in a fake mailbox, pretending to be crazy in order to avoid her, and getting in a fistfight with a taxi driver. Meanwhile, Madge is busy trying to establish her independence and prove that she can raise the baby on her own.

Frank Morgan plays the role of Casanova's close friend, Cornelius Burden, who tries to help Casanova extricate himself from his engagement with Isabel. He also proves to be a kind and supportive friend to Madge, offering her advice and support as she navigates her new life as a single mother.

As the movie progresses, Casanova and Madge's relationship deepens, and they both realize that they are truly in love with each other. However, their relationship is threatened by the arrival of Isabel, who refuses to give up on Casanova and is determined to win him back.

The movie comes to a dramatic and hilarious conclusion as Casanova and Madge finally find a way to be together, and Isabel realizes that Casanova is truly in love with someone else. The final scenes show Casanova and Madge happily cuddling their baby, with Cornelius looking on approvingly.

Casanova Brown is a delightful romantic comedy that showcases the talents of its all-star cast. Gary Cooper delivers a charming and nuanced performance as the title character, and Teresa Wright is equally impressive as the strong-willed and independent Madge. The movie is full of witty dialogue, humorous situations, and a heartwarming love story that will keep audiences entertained from beginning to end.
