Loosen Up with Charlie Ruggles
14 August 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Mild-mannered Charlie Ruggles (Asaph "Ace" Holliday), editorial writer for a New York weekly, loosens up a little after getting drunk with sexy secretary Ann Dvorak (as Beulah Boyd). Rotund school chum Eugene Palette (Wynn Rixey) arrives for a visit, then he and Mr. Ruggles revisit wild youth as "Friends of Mr. Sweeney". The carousing brings Ruggles head-to-head with a corrupt politician he's been ordered to write up in a flattering article, by stuffy editor Berton Churchill (as Franklyn P. Brumbaugh). Robert Barrat (as Alexis "Alex" Romanoff) is a funny Russian friend. The cast appears to be having a great time, and it's contagious. Watch for Ms. Dvorak to changes dresses in an early scene, and model her lingerie.

****** Friends of Mr. Sweeney (7/27/34) Edward Ludwig ~ Charlie Ruggles, Ann Dvorak, Eugene Palette, Robert Barrat
