joe brown goes wrasslin.....
24 November 2014 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Winnie Lightner is Brown's co-star in this seldom seen film from Warner Brothers. Looks like she only did thirteen films after her time in Broadway shows. She would be censored for the lyrics of her songs, even though the Hays code didn't really kick in until about 1934, 1935, when she was already retiring. Here she really steals the show, and sings a couple numbers. This one is in need of a restoration; the sound and picture quality are pretty bad for the first half hour, and again later in spots. Jojo (Brown) and Winnie (Lightner) run a spa, and Jojo wants to get married, but Winnie isn't ready yet. We see her at the beginning, then Jojo does a few vaudeville bits, alone and with other minor players at the health spa. Also a three way wrestling match. Jojo decides to train "Tom" (Paul Gregory) as a wrestler. Paul Gregory died at age 38 in NYC, but I haven't been able to find out the cause of death. Anyone know? During a wrestling demonstration, we suddenly jump into an out-of-focus display of a sultan and dancer scene, which doesn't make any sense. Also watch for "Snitz Edwards"... who was really born Edward Neumann. so how did he end up with the name Snitz?? Directed by Lloyd Bacon. Based on a story by Rex Taylor, who had started writing during the silents. It's pretty good. Exactly what you'd expect from a Joe Brown film.
