Great "B" MGM Pic
30 January 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I just caught it on TCM today and what a treat. Madge Evans and Edmund Lowe are reporters on a train following a munitions tycoon. The reasons for this are fairly thin, as is the resolution to the plot. But the movie's strength is in its fast pace and the chemistry between the two leads. When I first realized Lowe would be the leading man I prepared myself for disappointment. He's not exactly Cary Grant to look at. Evans is beautiful, of course. So I was worried this would be one of those old films with a beautiful young woman and a gross older man where the spark is just not there. These movies littered the 1930s and, more often than not, are duds. But don't worry the chemistry is there between these two leads. They have a lot of fun with the roles and it shows. It's fast, light, and fun with lots of great banter. Madge Evans, who I have seen before in a couple of roles, has never looked lovelier than here. There's also a great supporting cast, headed by Paul Lukas as the tycoon they're after. Overall I think it's a hidden gem and I recommend you catch it next time it's on.
