  • THE SAD FATES OF JOHN GILBERT & TOD BROWNING......

    • John H. McCARTHY
    • 6/8/12

    This movie is a testament to the fact that silent film great John Gilbert did not have vocal issues, but was sabotaged by MGM and Louis B. Mayer (check out his profile on Wikipedia). The movie also exemplifies the talents of Director Tod Browning, who's career was also ruined for making a movie so ahead of it's time (FREAKS), that to this day even a supposed "studio tampering" cannot destroy for it's ability to shock and horrify to prove that those who are "different" are no better or worse than you. Mostly considered a minor effort of Browning's, FAST WORKERS is an enjoyably racy little Pre-Code concoction. In this tale, Gilbert, and Robert Armstrong (KONG KONG, MIGHTY JOE YOUNG), in a departure from all the blustery boisterous characters he's known for, play two riveter buddies. Whenever one of them meets "a nice (read 'virgin') girl", the other seduces her to prove her true nature, thus saving each other from future heartbreak. When they both unknowingly begin relationships with Mae Clarke (PUBLIC ENEMY), they both "fall", but in extremely different ways! With exciting scenes on top of a skyscraper under construction, and liberal does of humour and heartbreak, FAST WORKERS never slows up or fails to entertain. An enjoyable supporting cast adds to the fun, including Sterling Holloway (WINNIE-THE-POOH) as "Pinky Magoo"(!) and an uncredited MAYO METHOT (MARKED WOMAN). An unknown gem that I came across on a late show years ago that took me years to track down, you owe it to yourself to check out "FAST WORKERS," a fine little "A-picture masquerading as a "B"!!!
