Enjoyable
23 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Silly bit of nonsense is played lightly by pros. Certainly the plot was old hat even in 1939 but it's breezily presented.

Wayne Morris pretty much reprises his Kid Galahad character here but he is appealingly earnest and a young Jane Wyman in one of the numerous programmers she churned out that year is fresh and flip. They make a cute couple.

The real enjoyment comes from the fantastic cast of characters that populate this. Pat O'Brien in full on slickster mode. The divine Joan Blondell as a former bubble dancer and wised up gal and the great May Robson, playing another version of Apple Annie, are completely charming. The rest of the cast is filled out with familiar faces doing what they do best. As long as you realize its a B this is a fun undemanding pastime.
