Storyline

Biff Grimes is pugnacious but likable young man during the Gay 90's living with his ne'er-do-well father, noted for their scrappy personalities and quick tempers. Like every other young man in town, Biff has a crush on gorgeous and flirtatious 'strawberry blonde' Virginia Brush, who gets catcalls every time she walks past the all-male clientèle of the neighborhood barber shop. Biff is joined in his admiration by his friends, Nick Pappalis, an immigrant Greek barber, and Hugo Barnsfeld, an unscrupulously ambitious young man who doesn't let anything stand in the way of what he wants, including Virginia. Utilizing both fair means and foul Hugo sweeps Vrginia off her feet and frames Biff as the fall guy in a political graft schemee. However, every dog has his day, and eight years later Biff stands poised to take his revenge. Written by duke1029@aol.com

A Feel Good Movie
29 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Music, Music music.....costumes...what a delightful old movie... Go back in time to an easier period. When you could take your best girl out on the town for $2.50. This movie just makes you long for the old, old days..when life was so much easier. Very little serious matter in the movie. Lot's of lessons to learn to. The beautiful package, the elusive girl, the importance of life. By todays standards this would be an extremely low budget film, yet it captures you and you leave the movie feeling better for watching it. Great cast with James Cagney, Olivia DeHavilland, Rita Haywood, Jack Carter who bring the movie to life. Not a great movie, but one worth seeing just to look back in time and enjoy.
