It's Snowtime!
26 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Paulette Goddard (Anna) has left home and now leads a life of easy virtue in the bars of Brooklyn. Her father Oskar Homolka (Joe) seeks her out to come back and stay with the family. However, there is an ulterior motive at play, namely recent college graduate William Bishop (Rudolf) who has turned up with $4,000, and to whom Omolka has been entrusted to look after and help find a suitable wife for. Goddard fits the bill as a perfect suitor if his family can only keep her prostitution past from Bishop.

Well, there's not really very much going on in terms of story but it's a good cast. Broderick Crawford (Frank) and Mary Wickes (Stella) score highly for comedy factor as does Grayce Hampton (Queenie) as the old lush in the bar at the end of the film. Very funny. A mention must also go to Paulette Goddard who is good in the lead role.

There is not too much that happens and the film is obviously originally intended as a play, but everything about the story is predictable, so no surprises anywhere. It's clichéd in parts, so it's not a particularly well written play. Nevertheless, Goddard and her wish for snow keeps things going. Without her and Broderick Crawford, this would suffer.
