Enjoyable 'Youth' Programmer...
7 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not all films catered to either Adults or Children during the GOLDEN AGE of Hollywood. TWO ALONE, RKO (1934) clearly targeted the 'Youth Audience' which in the 1950s' would become 'The Teenagers'. The leads played by JEAN PARKER (Mazie) and TOM BROWN (Adam) make a attractive and likable couple.

Mazie, a orphan is assigned to work for Mr. Slag (ARTHUR BYRON) and his bitch of a wife, Mrs. Slag (BEULAH BONDI). Adam arrives and Mazie and him fall in love much to the disapproval of the Slag's. The rest of the picture is them overcoming their own awkwardness and innocence, the Slag's and the social conventions of the day.

The film being made in the 'code' year of 1934 had to skirt some issues which are evident to the thoughtful viewer. Pre-martial sex, pregnancy and the lecherous attentions of Mr. Slag are more hinted at then overtly portrayed. Non of this though distracts from this very watchable film which clocks in at 75".
