pre-Code western-romance-comedy, highly recommended
6 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An exceptionally rare pre-Code western-romance-comedy starring Joan Bennett, Charles Farrell, Ralph Bellamy, and Eugene Palette, and directed by the always-brash Raoul Walsh. Adapted from the Brete Harte short story 'Salomy Jane's Kiss' and filmed on location among majestic California redwoods, this film features a young blonde Joan Bennett as the titular "wild girl"—a nature-loving free-spirit who is wooed by many but who falls for an out-of-town stranger (Farrell). Made in 1932 before the Hayes Office Code was strictly in force, Wild Girl shuttles between romance, adventure, raucous comedy, and titillation (a skinny-dipping Bennett). The unusual opening credit sequence is one of the most memorable of the period. This film is full of rowdy fun -- highly recommended!
