The Hudsucker Proxy
Director: Joel Coen
Cast: Tim Robbins, Paul Newman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Charles Durning

to devalue the stock and enable a takeover, a member of the board appoints a dorky mailroom clerk as the head of the Hudsucker Industries. This witty and hilarious screwball comedy is shot on amazing sets. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Newman and Tim Robbins are all fabulous, each in a very different role. Joel and Ethan Coen co-scripted their misunderstood gem with Sam Raimi.
