Tepid Saturday, 20 March 2010
Author: GManfred from Ramsey, NJ

Hot Saturday isn't really a great picture but as a Pre-Code movie with some famous stars it has a certain cachet. Interesting, maybe, but not a must-see. It is a hyperbolic tale about small town hypocrisy and is very tame by todays (lack of) standards - the main topic of discussion wouldn't raise an eyebrow nowadays.

True, there is a scene in which the little sister gets de-pantsed by the big sister for wearing her brand-new underdrawers, but I guess it was more shocking to '30's audiences than now. The big sister, Played by Nancy Carroll, is the main focus of the story. Hadn't seen her before and she was very good, a ringer for Betty White with a cute kewpie-doll face. This was Cary Grants' 3rd film and made a pleasant appearance as the rakish Romer Sheffield, local rich boy ne'er do well. Randolph Scott plays it straight without much to do - no six-shooter and doesn't get to punch anyone.

Recommended for film history buffs. Pretty tame stuff and an OK way to spend 73 minutes, as it moves quickly.
