The Art Racket
13 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A Gentleman At Heart is a mildly amusing comedy from 20th Century Fox's B Picture unit that stars Cesar Romero who steps out of his own racket as a book maker to enter the world of art. Inspired by the good looks of Carole Landis who is one of the curators of an art gallery, Romero learns quick about how this could be exploited, but will it be fast enough?

It all starts when Romero's associate Milton Berle inherits an art gallery from his late uncle. As Berle is in deep to Romero he gives it to him and he's ready to sell even for the small amount the location and building will bring him. But hanging around Landis and then making the acquaintance of a pair of con artists Rose Hobart and J. Carrol Naish, Romero sees all kinds of possibilities, especially from Naish who is a forger and boasts his forgeries are better than the originals.

A Gentleman At Heart still holds up well after over 70 years. Mainly because the subject matter is eternal. There are art galleries and there are con artists looking to take advantage. Philistines as well if you'll recall The Wheeler Dealers James Garner catches on to the art racket rather quickly and learns the economics of the situation.

Cesar and Carole are attractive leads and there's a host of familiar character players who are always a treat. Can't go wrong with this.
