During the prison escape when Harlow and friend hop into the getaway car, the seat backs are already wet before the two drenched escapees get into the auto. Obviously this was a second or third take of this scene. See more »
I enjoyed this 1935 movie. I like Jean Harlow and she gives a splendid realistic portrayal of a girl in love with a man who seems to ignore her. She looks wonderful in this movie. The story is rather far fetched about a tuna fisherman who wants better conditions and better pay for himself and his fellow workers but is rather immature and bull headed about everything and everyone. He is always getting in arguments or fights at the drop of a hat. Una Merkel as the sister is fine and the young Mickey Rooney is also in this movie. It is a pleasant story, if rather dated and old fashioned, but I did enjoy it and recommend it, and especially for us Jean Harlow fans, of whom, there are many.
