Odd scenes make it a keeper
24 August 2014 | by (Ann Arbor, Mi) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's a typical Lee Tracy film. It's as fast paced, and as much fun as most of his films of the period are. But, there are a lot of subplots, and unusual scenes, that make it rise above the ordinary. The marriage by mail con has been mentioned, as has the crooked dog catcher. Another is the little old guy who comes to the PO every day, expecting a letter from his son. The whole seeing the public through the eyes of the PO worker in the window bit is a marvelous slice of life of the day. The film also has one of the strangest "interrogation" scenes I've ever seen. Three cops work on a suspect by being annoying, all psychological, no rough stuff at all. Great stuff. I also loved the art deco interior hallway in Tracy and Stuart's hotel. They don't make 'em like that any more. I think this film is a keeper.
