silly but fun
16 June 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Some giagantic plot holes in this one, but it's still kind of fun to watch it all unfold. And of course, the awesome Alan Hale (Gilligan's dad) is in it, and his films are guaranteed fun. Thug "Broken Nose" Dawson (Donlevy) gets a face lift so he can make a clean get-away, but there's still the problem of the surgeon and the nurse who did the surgery. Molly Lamont is "Mary", who tries to get away from it all as well, but fate steps in and she's back in the soup. It's a show within a show premise, with Hale as the studio boss, and Erik Rhodes as his assistant. Rhodes was always "the foreigner with the accent" in the Fred Astair and Ginger Roger films. Some pretty in-consequential roles for Jack Randall, Wallace Ford, and Phyllis Brooks. They are just along for the ride, while we see if Mary can tip off the cops before Dawson recognizes her. It's a typical caper... more complicated than it has to be, running around, getting locked in closets, but it's light hearted and fun. Directed by W.C. Cabanne, in his prime. He had started in silents and made the switch to talkies. Pretty good, but you really have to buy into it all and not look too closely.
