Calling All Harrison Ford Addicts and Railroad Buffs!
While Harrison Ford does a great support job as the romantic lead in Rubber Tires, the fifth film he made in 1927, The Girl in the Pullman, finds him in full comedic flight. In fact his material is so amusing and his flabbergasted reactions so hilarious that he easily steals the picture from its nominal star, the tragic Marie Prevost, who is further out-classed, alas, by an inspired support cast led by Franklin Pangborn, Kathryn McGuire, Ethel Wales and Harry Myers. Even Heinie Conklin (in black-face) enjoys some sterling moments. Of course, for railroad buffs, the movie is an absolute must, but for all who thrill to a quick-paced, stylishly directed (by Erle C. Kenton) romantic comedy, The Girl is a howl.
