Mildly amusing Damon Runyon types

1935's "Hold 'Em Yale" is an amusing comedy starring Patricia Ellis as a spoiled socialite who cannot resist uniforms, whose wealthy father (George Barbier) pays a steep price for her casual affairs. She has now fallen for a gigolo called Georgie the Chaser (Cesar Romero), who leaves the poor girl in a New York apartment when he learns that she has been disowned by her old man. Stuck with her in the apartment are a quartet of small-time ticket scalpers with colorful names: Sunshine Joe (William Frawley), Liverlips (Andy Devine), Sam the Gonoph (Warren Hymer), and Bennie South Street (George E. Stone), who have also been abandoned by former go-between Georgie. They convince her to join them at the annual Yale-Harvard game, in an attempt to fix her up with her college sweetheart, Hector Wilmot (Buster Crabbe), a bookworm riding the bench for Yale. Edward Gargan (brother of William) plays a private detective working for the socialite's father, and Lon Chaney Jr. can be spotted wearing a hood as another football player riding the bench for Yale. Good cast, but Cesar Romero exits halfway into the picture; William Frawley comes off best.
