During the filming the pugnacious Wellman spotted assistant director Mike Lally, who had no business there on the set. They disliked each other and the resulting fistfight and its results were memorable. In addition, 'Wild Bill' personally disliked star Spencer Tracy, and that animosity culminated in a blistering brawl between the two at the Trocadero Club in 1934. See more »
Tracy aces the Bell Telephone Company trouble shooter hero character. Incident is piled high as Spence takes a night time 'phone emergency, with new side kick Okie in tow, and gets mixed in with the speak easy low lifes at the club, where he's repairing the 'phone. Misunderstandings follow with switch operator lady friend Cummings and rival gone to the bad Conway, involving wire tapping and a bank job. Throw in the 1933 Long Beach earth quake no less.
They go on too long past the fire scene, which should be the climax and major talents like director Wellman, Tracy and Cummings must have regarded this as light duties but they seem to be in their element and deliver lively entertainment for the undemanding.
