Ho-neeeee!
28 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ho-nee! " That's crazy Jimmy Cagney calling to his partner Joan Blondell in this wacky early-30s comedy-drama which reminded a bit, attitude-wise, with a film he did the following year called "Lady Killer."

It also was typical Cagney: a very cocky con man (as a bellhop!) and fun-to- watch character who will do and say about anything. The dialog between he and Blondell in this film is a real hoot. It features a lot of the expressions of this time period.

Louis Calhern plays a competing con man who swindles Cagney, but then gets taken himself. A very young Ray Milland, in one of his first credited appearances, is so young I didn't know it was him, but recognized the voice. He looked a lot like Bob Cummings.

Not a great film but entertaining for the part, as Cagney films usually were. Every time he yells "Ho-nee!" I laugh out loud. Ya gotta love him!
