Storyline

Ham Hamilton knows that gold-digger Marcia Trent is only after Robert Densmore for his money, so he tells Marcia that Robert is broke and she calls off the announced wedding. Disappointed and ready to die, Robert goes to Budapest, with Ham as his companion, where he decides he can best accomplish his death wish by making love to Marietta, whose husband, Spadissimo is the finest swordsman in all of Europe and will surely kill him in a duel. The duel is on and Robert is very quickly on the losing end when Ham, knowing that Spadissimo has a mother complex, poses as Robert's mother and Spadissimo breaks down in tears, while Robert, Marietta and Ham make a quick exit stage left. Marcia, having learned that Robert is not broke enters ready to renew the romance, but takes her romance notion in another direction when the sees the size of the castle of the recently-jilted Spadissimo.

Fight not to see this
2 July 2007 | by HandlinghandelSee all my reviews

Jack Oakie has the main role. He's excellent in an atypical role in "Thieves' Highway." Here he is pure corn pone.

This movie has the logic of an early Eddie Cantor movie -- and none of the charm. Oakie begins as the manager of a boxer. The boxer is played by a very handsome actor, who shows off his body quite a bit. Then there's this opera singer, see ... He has a blonde girlfriend. She is played amusingly by Margot Graham.

Oakie seems to be managing the opera singer -- who sings no opera. He tosses off a schmaltzy song but opera? None.

I watched it because Ida Lupino is in it. She does what she can. She looks very pretty and she is appealing.

It's not the worst movie that great lady ever appeared in. That would be "The Lady and the Mob." But it is at best routine and really sub-par.
