Better than you'd expect
19 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a typical Lee Tracy second feature from the late '30s, no great shakes, but better than you'd expect. Lee plays his usual role, the fast-talking, slightly amoral reporter Eddie Haines, this time, however, for a radio station. He continually scoops the paper-bound journalists of the New York Star, much to the vexation of ex-girlfriend Mary Bradley, a lady reporter more than reminiscent of Lois Lane. Unlike Lois Lane, Mary Bradley, as played by Diana Gibson, does a pretty good job of looking after herself- in fact, she contributes more towards her rescue than Eddie. I was surprised how much I liked Diana Gibson- she's cool, classy and understated, without the eye-rolling dramatics of Lee Tracy's other co-stars. The scene where she's held captive in the armored car, broadcasting her location to the FBI, is quite nice. And the ending scene with Lee Tracy- where she finally gets the last word- is a real hoot. Tracy is cute and amusing, as always, but for some reason I remember Diana Gibson's performance more. It's worth checking out on TCM sometime, where they broadcast it occasionally.
