They were not the marrying kind, so they agreed that neither one could wed until his pal had tried to win his girl away! The funniest love-test ever made, with thrills and laughs galore when they both fall for the same girl!
When Bucker (Robert Armstrong) and Mary (Mae Clarke) go to the movies, the unidentified film they see is an MGM production of 1931, Laughing Sinners (1931). Joan Crawford and Neil Hamilton are on screen. See more »
Snappy film that looks and feels like a Warners film, this MGM film bristles with sexual tension. John Gilbert is terrific as the construction worker who tangles with smart dame Mae Clarke and pal Robert Armstrong.
Gilbert had his problems at MGM with LB Mayer, but his talent shines thru the rotten films they assigned him. And this film is a perfect example. It's a B film about the loves and lives of menial workers but Gilbert makes it an event. He's confident, sexy, and terrific as the worker who falls into the clutches of a "working girl." The three stars are quite good. The supporting cast includes Herman Bing, Sterling Holloway, Vince Barnett, Bob Burns, Nora Cecil, and Virginia Cherrill.
As mentioned elsewhere, this film finished off Gilbert's contract with MGM. Mayer had done his best to ruin Gilbert's career by assigning him bad films, but Gilbert is really good in this film as well as THE PHANTOM OF Paris and DOWNSTAIRS.
