Great little entertaining flick with a bit of everything
19 July 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Gangway is a great little movie which I would decribe as a cross between a crime, drama, romance, muscial and comedy. It starts off with film critic turned reporter(Patricia) going under cover as a maid in a hotel to get a story, then it just so happens that a private dick (Bob) is after a jewellery thief called "Sparkles" who masquerades as a maid. Anyway he thinks that Patricia is Sparkles, falls in love with her regardless and follows her to America when she's kidnapped by a hood "Smiles" who also thinks she's the infamous Sparkles. All manner of events follow, and it all makes for quite an amusing picture. The Star, Jessie Mathews who plays the film critic/reporter Patricia is wonderful (She's very flexible and does some really good tap routines), with good supporting ensemble performances all around. Lots of fantastic song and dance numbers, some hilarious moments, (most notabley the tenderfoot dance) not to mention a good ol fashioned gang style shootout. A british flick with an american connnection, I'd give it 3 stars out of 5.
