From the studio that gave us The Three Stooges.
26 September 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The only thing "My Woman" has in common with Moe, Larry, and Curly is minimal production values-- though of course much less effort was put into Three Stooges shorts than into feature films, even one as tossed-off (and poorly titled) as this one. These were cranked out like Kit-Kat bars.

According to Wikipedia: "During the 1930s, the eight majors averaged a total of 358 feature film releases a year." That's about one movie from each studio every eight days. "My Woman" was from Columbia, which wasn't even a major in the 30's, so they had even fewer resources, and it shows.

Here's another bit of revelatory arithmetic: Helen Twelvetrees, a cute and competent platinum blonde from Brooklyn, made 33 movies in her entire 10-year career-- none much more famous than this one. She died, aged 49, a suicide.

The plot is so ordinary it hardly bears revealing-- wife helps husband with radio career, husband gets famous and insufferable, wife has to choose between him and lusting producer. Roughly. There's only one scene I really enjoyed, an extended comic riff about half an hour in. The omnipresent character actor Charles Lane (350 screen credits!) brings a batch of clients to audition for some very bored radio executives. One audition is worse than the next, but the most preposterous by far is a young (39 at the time) Walter Brennan as a stuttering actor whose act is animal noises. Reeaallly lousy animal noises, which he does really well (not easy). He's halfway through his South American fauna when he's yanked. "You're off the air old man," the stage hand says when he takes the mike. "Nerts to you," stutters Brennan.

He's the only character I wanted more of.
