Goofs

In the Chief's office at the police station, there is a large map covering the wall behind the Chief's desk, showing much of Eastern Los Angeles County (California), and a bit of San Bernardino County to the East of that. Most of the cities are placed more or less correctly on the map in relation to one another, although the distances between them are not always to scale. Two exceptions are Azusa and Glendora, which are shown above (North) of Ontario and East of Pomona. Both Azusa and Glendale are several miles to the West of Pomona and even farther away from Ontario.

Hit the Road, Jackie
27 November 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Southern California rich kid Jackie Cooper (as Frederick "Freddie" Martindale Vincent III) runs away from home when his wealthy widower father tells the boy he can't keep his dog "Duke" (a role credited to Rin Tin Tin Jr., billed as a canine offspring of the most successful animal star at the time). Young Cooper and his German Sheppard hit the streets as hitchhikers. Unable to get picked-up, Cooper and "Duke" jump a truck. In quick succession, they are caught in a gangster shoot-out, kidnapped and taken hostage by convicted bank robber Joseph Calleia (as Joseph "Joe" Calerno)...

While trying to avoid detectives and disgruntled gangsters, Cooper and Mr. Calleia bond; they sleep, swim and toast marshmallows together. Cooper eventually finds himself in even greater danger, with Calleia, "Duke" and father Robert Warwick (as Frederick Martindale Vincent II) struggling to save the lad's life. Veteran humanitarian Jean Hersholt appears nicely as a La Crescenta veterinarian. "Tough Guy" is a formula film with subversive undertones. The co-stars perform well. Calleia and veteran director Chester M. Franklin skillfully bring it to a captivating, bang-up ending.

******* Tough Guy (1/24/36) Chester M. Franklin ~ Jackie Cooper, Joseph Calleia, Harvey Stephens, Jean Hersholt
