Starts with a bang, ends with a whimper
11 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

A re-make of Me and My Gal (1932) with Lloyd Nolan in the Spencer Tracy role and Lynn Bari as the waterfront waitress. Neither movie is particularly good, though this one is the better bet, despite the fact that the original was directed by Raoul Walsh (on an off day), while this one is a product of Sol Wurtzel's "B" unit and was directed by the nondescript Eugene Forde. What is more to the point, however, this one was photographed by one of Hollywood's top five cinematographers, namely Virgil Miller – a whiz with film noir lighting. In fact, this one starts off with an action "bang" and then follows up with a delightful scene in which Lloyd Nolan's rookie cop, Dolan, exchanges some bright back-chat with Lynn Bari's gum-chewing waitress, Duchess. Alas, from this point on, the screenplay takes a nosedive and not all Eugene Forde's smooth direction not all Wurtzel's excellent production values can save Pier 13 from utter tedium.
