Winner of the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, You Can't Take it With You tells the tale of the Sycamore family. At first they seem mad, but it is not long before you realize that if they are mad, then the rest of the world is madder! The play was the basis for the 1938 film—directed by Frank Capra and featuring Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur, and Lionel Barrymore—which was awarded the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director.
