Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
This is a standard tale of husband and wife live a party lifestyle and he works in a gambling hall and she occasionally models and sings. Because they want to start a family, wife feels the need to change their situation. Situation is changed and husband gets a new job, and then a promotion, but is tricked into a bad business deal and wants to go back to his old life. Husband returns to gambling and loses wife and son. Wife goes into fashion, gets a new boyfriend and does well for herself until she hears about her husband's shady deals. Ann Sothern is always a delight in any role and she performs with her usual panache and verve. Bruce Cabot is wooden throughout the entire film and incapable of expressing any emotions (has the same look on his face whether happy or sad). Irving Pichel was the bad guy with a conscience and was just adequate. Look fast for the Nicholas Brothers do a dance routine in the club.
