Eight Arms to Hold Neil Hamilton
6 July 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Neil Hamilton (as Richard "Dick" Sutton) wants to marry fiancée Barbara Reed (as Linda Pearson) right away, but she thinks they should wait until he has more money. Meanwhile, Mr. Hamilton is being pursued by June Lang (as Gwendolyn "Gwenny" Miller) and Joyce Compton (as Barbara Cartwright), who also consider themselves engaged to Hamilton; they want a quick wedding. Then, a fourth woman turns up, and her gangster brother insists Hamilton marry Marlo Dwyer (as Lorraine O'Reilly). As a subplot, Hamilton may or may not be a millionaire. This all may sound exciting, but it's not. Debuting character actor Fred Sherman (as Charlie Blakewell) does a all right in the buddy role. Hamilton is seen here between his 1920s silent stardom and 1960s "Batman" role.
