Eddie Finally Ditches Priggish Genevieve and her Family for Ever-Charming Glenda
The story is routine but it has many interesting touches:
Sidney Toler as a villain, a nasty Caucasion. He's very good in this role.
Genevieve Tobin was a lovely actress but she is under the sway of her shrewish mother here. Only her nerdy brother has any decency.
It's astonishing to see that almost 60 years ago, the title character -- a rescued racing greyhound -- is being MASSAGED by hero Robinson. So much for the inventiveness of New Age technology. It's actually quite touching.
What I love is that in the end, he gets wise to Tobin and her low-class, upwardly mobile mother and dumps the lot of them in favor of the always charming, likable Farrell, who is kind of a bad girl here but one we like.
