For Tax Day: The Mating Game and Stranger Than Fiction

posted by Nell Minow

In celebration of tax day, enjoy two romantic comedies about IRS agents.

“The Mating Game” stars Tony Randall and Debbie Reynolds in a rollicking story about a warm-hearted farm family that never pays taxes because they do everything on the barter system.  Paul Douglas is wonderful in what would be his last performance.  If that sounds familiar to PBS fans, it’s because it is based on The Darling Buds of May by H.E. Bates, which became a a 1991 television series starring Catherine Zeta-Jones.
