From Prohibition to Protection
9 May 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Prohibition may be over but the city's racketeers are still terrorizing liquor dealers with a protection racket. When eager would be reporter Florence Rice is a witness to the murder of a state liquor board inspector that other reporters have written up as an automobile accident she gets her job at Paul Kelly's newspaper in Women Are Trouble.

The trouble they can be is that Rice becomes a romantic football tossed between Kelly and reporter Stu Erwin. That relationship is taken right from The Front Page.

Woman Are Trouble is an interesting product from MGM's B picture unit and stealing the show is Kitty McHugh the feisty wife then widow of murder suspect Raymond Hatton. I wish we saw a lot more of her in this film, she really steals it.

This is an amusing film, glad I got see it this morning.
