If you widen your net to include plays (like Earnest), then you could add:
Born Yesterday, Desk Set, Barefoot in the Park, The Grass is Greener, Bell
Book and Candle, The Tender Trap, Trouble in Paradise, Will Success Spoil
Rock Hunter?, The Awful Truth (1937), How to Marry a Millionaire, Yours
Mine and Ours.
More novels (though some may be a bit of a stretch): The Americanization
of Emily, The Trouble with Harry, My Man Godfrey, Georgy Girl, Mr. Peabody
and the Mermaid, Love in the Afternoon, It Happened One Night (based on
short story).
