Did You Know?

Trivia:
The name of the newspaper where Johnny works is the "New York Sun Telegram," a fictional New York City newspaper. On the page with Johnny's column are two interesting references, the first, "Wisconsin News," is directly over his column, and the second, an article entitled "Grocers View Hearst Film" is a reference to newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, who owned New York City newspapers, first called the New York Journal, and the New York American, and later merged to become the New York Journal American. Johnny promises his editor that he will scoop the Journal American.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Johnny promises his editor that he will scoop the Journal American. Johnny's character is set in the 1920s, but the New York Journal American, a Hearst newspaper, did not exist until 1937, after the merger of two Hearst newspapers, the New York Journal, and the New York American.See more »
Quotes:
Samantha Winter:Are you gay?
Johnny Twennies:Sure I'm gay, I'm as gay as a day in May.
Samantha Winter:[puzzled] Well are you bi?
Johnny Twennies:By myself mostly.

Harold in Manhattan, 27 February 2004
Author: ptb-8 from Australia

If Harold Lloyd had lived in 1999 and Woody Allen starred him in a new black and white film set in MANHATTAN, well this would be it. The idea for this film is very funny and it does deliver, musical numbers and all....there is even a Shanghai Lil style detour. It could have easily been more of a musical and easily have tossed in more episodes of Johnny Twennies wrangling modern mannerisms. Gibson Frasier is a real silent movie or Vitaphone hero and the IT girl sensibilities of 'his girl' works. It is only 77 minutes and I actually wanted more. As Johnny says in one very funny toss away line........RATS! The soundtrack which I also have at home as a Saturday morning pick-me-up is cute and accurate for the feel of the film.
