The Comedy Is Criminal
2 July 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Fresh from World War II service, doughy William Tracy (as Dorian "Dodo" Doubleday) returns to his newspaper job at "The Tribune" where he is promoted from copy boy to police reporter. Publisher Emory Parnell (as Winfield "Windy" Blake) knows Mr. Tracy isn't qualified for the dangerous position, but hopes the area's powerful mob will run him out of town, like they did the last reporter. Mr. Parnell figures this will force pretty daughter Beverly Lloyd (as Penny Blake) end her relationship with Tracy. But, with bumbling Sergeant pal Joe Sawyer (as Ames) helping, Tracy decides to tough it out.

"Here Comes Trouble" starts off with some funny bits involving Tracy, gets tedious along the way, and ends with a little excitement. Making a haphazard blackmail plot more fun than it's worth is watching leggy burlesque showgirl Joan Woodbury (as "Bubbles" La Rue). Ms. Lloyd is likewise beautiful to behold; on the evidence presented herein, she should have had a more substantial career. Former star Betty Compson is also around, in matronly role. This seems to have been an attempt at a different situation comedy for Tracy, with partner Sawyer getting the short end of the shtick. They returned to familiar territory.

**** Here Comes Trouble (3/15/48) Fred Guiol ~ William Tracy, Joe Sawyer, Beverly Lloyd, Joan Woodbury
