Dramatic acting of Jack Oakie
21 February 2012 | by pauldeboefSee all my reviews

UPTOWN NEW YORK is an underrated romance/drama picture, it really shows more depth and more feeling than many other movies of the early 1930s. Jack Oakie received an Oscar nomination for his acting in "The Great Dictator", but he should have got an Oscar for his absorbing portrayal of Eddie Doyle in UPTOWN NEW YORK. In many scenes Oakie does not act but he IS his character. The scenes when he is waiting in the hospital while his wife is operated in the next room are stunning. I have never seen something like this before. Beautiful Shirley Grey is also totally convincing and perfect as the beloved New York gal. (In some of the scenes she looks like Madonna). Leon Ames is good as the successful Jewish doctor, but Jack Oakie steals the show and makes UPTOWN NEW YORK - 80 years ago now - a great film with a timeless quality. And for a 1932 movie, it's quite modern in feel. The film has many imaginative scenes with great photography. The quality of the DVD from Alpha Entertainment is pretty bad and the framing is not very good. But Alpha is the only DVD available.
