Great Classic Film of 1949
21 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wallace Berry,(Big Jack Horner),"Wyoming",'40, made this film his swan song and gave an outstanding performance as a slick wise old owl up to no good, but had a very kind heart for doing good for people and sometimes the opposite. Marjorie Main,(Flapjack Kate), was his sidekick or wife, and gave him a hard time whenever she could. I was surprised to see Richard Conte,(Dr. Alexander Meade),"Tony Rome",'67,who was the only person all dressed up and looking like a million dollars. Big Jack Horner and the other supporting actors all dressed like hillbilly's from them thar Hills!! If you like old time actors and the rough ways of Wallace Berry, his deep voice and slow speech, you will certainly enjoy the slap stick story from the past years. My dad use to tell me that Richard Conte's father use to be a barber in Jersey City, N.J., and cut his hair for $1.25. (Way back WHEN!)
