Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Phenomenal dramatic acting of Jack Oakie
21 February 2012 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

UPTOWN NEW YORK is a completely underrated romance/drama picture, it really shows more depth and more feeling than most of the other movies of the early 1930s. Jack Oakie received an Oscar nomination for his acting in "The Great Dictator", but he should have got an Oscar for his totally absorbing portrayal of Eddie Doyle in UPTOWN NEW YORK. Oakie does not act in this film, he IS his character. The scenes when he is waiting in the hospital while his wife is operated in the next room are absolutely heartbreaking. I have never seen something like this before. Beautiful Shirley Grey is also totally convincing and perfect as the beloved New York gal. (In some of the scenes she looks like Madonna). Leon Ames is good as the successful Jewish doctor, but Jack Oakie steals the show and makes UPTOWN NEW YORK - 80 years ago now - an amazing film with a timeless quality. And for a 1932 movie, it's quite modern in feel. The film has many highly imaginative scenes with great photography. The quality of the DVD from Alpha Entertainment is rather mediocre, the framing is not very good. But Alpha is the only DVD available.
