with Celeste Holm, Vincent Price

Champagne for Caesar (1950) is an amusing satire on radio quiz shows.

Colman plays genius Beauregard Bottomley who, when refused a job at a soap company, sets about ruining the business into bankruptcy by winning a fortune on their radio quiz show.

Celeste Holm is Bottomley's romantic interest, and Vincent Price is flamboyantly hysterical as the soap company's psycho-president.

 

 

The three stars play off each other well and the movie is entertaining.  Colman, however, was so disappointed with the film that he would not do another for six years.
