A very good movie with an array of interesting characters.
This is a great movie, with strong performances from all of its stars.
Spencer Tracy is great as a manipulative bum who is capable of doing some
pretty low things at times, but can actually be repentant and likeable at
other times. John Garfield is also good as another bum who gets a break
only to be walked all over by Tracy's character. And Frank Morgan is
memorable as a mysterious hermit dog lover who Tracy tries to decipher
selfish reasons. And it's here that Hedy Lamarr proves conclusively that
she wasn't reliant on glamor, as she gives a great performance as a poor
Portuguese girl with slightly untidy hair, inexpensive clothing, and
makeup. And she looks as gorgeous as ever despite all that! This movie
the last serious effort MGM made to get Hedy Lamarr a good role in a good
movie and make a bigger star of her. Unfortunately, bad timing (the U.S.
having recently been forced into WWII) caused a lack of public interest
this film when it was released, and MGM rapidly lost interest in her from
that point on. She went on to make only five more films for MGM, and
most of them are decent and entertaining enough, none are truly
Too bad. She was wonderful!
