Goofs:
Factual errors: At the start of the movie, a hotel elevator is indicated moving up more than three floors in one second - an impossibly fast speed, even today. Its return down is shown at a more realistic pace.See more »
Quotes:
Pawnbroker:[inspecting the stolen bracelet Bert has brought in] It's nice. Maybe it's too nice. What'll I do with it? That stuff is hard to sell.
Bert Harris:Who cares? Give to your wife for a Christmas present.

Bert Harris:Listen three-balls, I want five thousand dollars and I want it in a hurry. It's worth twenty thousand. And don't give me any backtalk.

Ho-neeeee!, 28 April 2006
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

"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!
