Caper with mistaken identity and inept cops
31 January 2008 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Jane Darwell as Grandma Allen sure stole the show in this old black and white rags to riches story from 1941. Darwell had just won the Oscar for playing Ma Joad in Grapes of Wrath. Robert Barnes (Alan Hale) and Ed Barnes (Eddie Albert) are father and son, in this love story and mistaken identity caper, with Grandma helping things along. Joan Leslie is Mary, the blushing bride, along for the ride. Even a young Anthony Quinn as "Collins" the thug. Blossom, the laughing maid, is played by Etta McDaniel, sister of Hattie. Looks like the McDaniel sisters only worked together once in "Stella Dallas" in 1937. Alan Hale, who usually played the old, gruff sea salt, made 235 films, starting in 1911. Eddie Albert's biggest movie was Roman Holiday in 1953 and of course he played "Oliver" in the Green Acres TV series. He had only been in films for three years when he made "Thieves Fall Out". Any flick that has the good guys trying to outwit the bad guys has to have inept cops, and Edward Brophy and Edward Gargan are here, playing their usual roles.
