The Fall Guy (1930)
Ned Sparks is Hard To Watch....
I generally love old movies, pre-code even more, but this one just grated on my nerves. I think it was Ned Sparks "playing" that sax and pretending he had great dialog. I know it was the thirties, but did he have to pull such strange faces when he spoke his lines? And what lines...again, i usually love older dialog, as written by folks who had lived a little, but this one just seemed so dated to me, and even corny...Ned looked like he just sucked lemons after every line...WTF?
He also appeared to have some sort of nerve disorder, the way he screwed up his face every time he was on camera. Reminded me of my grandfather, and not in a good way...
Anyway, just thought adding another comment couldn't hurt-sorry if i've offended anybody, but give me an old Cagney movie, or something where the actors don't inspire such reactions to their characters.
I know, it was probably great when it came out, but that guy with the sax just needed a beat-down in the worst way...
