Synopsis: A playboy finds true love during an ocean cruise.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Mark Sandrich. Charlie Ruggles, Phil Harris, Helen Mack, Greta Nissen, Chick Chandler, June Brewster. Sexy (pre-Production Code) musical comedy with Harris romancing Mack and Ruggles providing the laughs. Notable for its imaginative use of photography and optical effects, which virtually steal the show. Director Sandrich went on to do the Astaire-Rogers musicals. Look for Betty Grable in a bit.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Lewis Milestone. Victor McLaglen, John Gilbert, Walter Connolly, Wynne Gibson, Helen Vinson, Alison Skipworth, Leon Errol, Walter Catlett, Akim Tamiroff, Donald Meek, Arthur Treacher, The Three Stooges. Bizarre, seagoing GRAND HOTEL, with accent on comedy; romances and intrigues carry on under bored eye of disgruntled skipper Connolly. Once-in-a-lifetime cast does its best with mediocre script; Gilbert (ironically cast as a heavy drinker) gives a solid performance in his final film.

Famed as a sea-going Grand Hotel, this splendid comedy-drama presents a variety of interlocking stories set aboard a luxury liner bound for Latin America. Such marvelous actors as... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edmund Goulding, Merle Oberon, George Brent, Pat O'Brien, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Binnie Barnes, Frank McHugh, Eric Blore, George Reeves. Overblown remake of ONE WAY PASSAGE recounts romance between suave crook Brent and fatally ill Oberon; McHugh repeats comedy- relief role from 1932 original.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Andrew L. Stone. Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone, George Sanders, Edmond O'Brien, Woody Strode. Engrossing drama of luxury ship that goes down at sea, and the ways the crew and passengers are affected. (To heighten the realism of the film, they really sank a ship.) Sanders is ill-fated captain, Stack and Malone a married couple in jeopardy.

Emmy-winner and Oscar-nominee Robert Stack (Written on the Wind, TV's the Untouchables) and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone (Written on the Wind, TV's Peyton Place) star as a married... more

Sparkling, trivial romantic musical set on an ocean voyage, with Doris' star-making feature film debut, singing "It's Magic,'' "Put 'em in a Box.'' Easygoing fun.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Howard Hawks. Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy, Gene Lockhart, Helen Mack, Ernest Truex, Clarence Kolb, Porter Hall, Roscoe Karns, Abner Biberman, Cliff Edwards, John Qualen, Frank Jenks, Billy Gilbert. Splendid comedy remake of THE FRONT PAGE with Grant as conniving editor, Russell as star reporter (and his ex-wife), Bellamy as mama's boy she's trying to marry amid hot murder story. Terrific character actors add sparkle to must-see film, scripted by Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer. Remade (with the same gender twist) in 1988 as SWITCHING CHANNELS.

Adapted from the stage play by Ben Hecht this comedy involves a reporter who was once married to Walter (Cary Grant). She has decided the job is too stressful and to marry someone... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Frank Capra. Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Walter Connolly, Roscoe Karns, Alan Hale, Ward Bond. Legendary romantic comedy doesn't age a bit. Still as enchanting as ever, with reporter Gable and runaway heiress Colbert falling in love on rural bus trip. Hitch-hiking travails, the Walls of Jericho, other memorable scenes remain fresh and delightful. First film to win all five major Oscars: Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay (Robert Riskin). Based on Samuel Hopkins Adams' story "Night Bus,'' originally published in Cosmopolitan. Remade as musicals EVE KNEW HER APPLES and YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM IT.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Jack Conway. Jean Harlow, William Powell, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy, Walter Connolly, Charley Grapewin, Cora Witherspoon. Wonderful comedy with the four stars working at full steam: conniving newspaper editor Tracy uses his fiancee (Harlow) and ex-employee (Powell) to get the goods on hot-headed heiress Loy--but everything goes wrong. Sit back and enjoy. Screenplay by Maurine Watkins, Howard Emmett Rogers, and George Oppenheimer. Remade as EASY TO WED.

Bill Chandler (William Powell) is one of America's great anglers, a sports fisherman without peer, doom in waders to the wiliest trout. And that isn't the only fish story Chandler... more
