Some Like it Hot Saturday, 31 May 2009
Author: HarlowMGM from United States

Hot Saturday is neat little pre-code drama with one of Cary Grant's earliest starring roles. Grant is top-billed but the center of the film is actually Nancy Carroll, an enormously popular young actress in the first years of the talkies, 1929-1931 but apparently already starting to slip in 1932 being second-billed to a newcomer.

Carroll is a pretty bank clerk whom all the local boys are crazy about, including scandalous young heir Cary Grant as Romer Sheffield (aren't all Sheffields in old movies wealthy?), who brings out of town girls in to stay at his estate for weeks at a time. When Cary invites the local young people to his home on the lake for a party, they all happily agree even though he is quite infamous among the older folks. Carroll is escorted by local boy Edward Woods. who turns into quite a leech on private boat ride and when Nancy won't come across, abandons her on the other side of the lake. Nancy ends up walking some distance and the nearest home just so happens to be Cary's estate. When she is seen by her trampy rival Lilan Bond coming home in Grant's car, the jealous bitch starts a rumor that spreads like wildfire that Nancy spent the night alone with Cary, a rumor that causes Nancy to lose her job and threatens her long, chaste romance with Randolph Scott.

This little melodrama has an excellent cast (except for Bond, whose line readings are flat) that makes the slim story interesting. Nancy Carroll is cute and does very well with her role, making her part sympathetic at all times but she is saddled with a terrible hairstyle and has on way too much makeup. Cary Grant is excellent as the free-loving hedonist to whom marriage is a no-no but he is surprisingly topped in sex appeal by his friend Randolph Scott as the decent and shy semi-beau of Carroll's. Edward Woods is very effective as the All American pal who turns out to be a major creep and there's a very good performance from Jane Darwell as Nancy's bossy and prudish mother. Hot Saturday is not a classic but it definitely deserves a look if you enjoy pre-codes.
