  • Not a bad as you might think

    I was expecting the worst, especially when Bogart himself called Swing Your Lady the worst movie he ever made, I was actually pleasantly surprised. Swing Your Lady is no worse than your average Ma and Pa Kettle offering, in fact it may be a wee bit funnier. A b-movie for sure, a product of the late 1930's, definately, but still entertaining, and I laughed out loud more than once. Bogart, no matter how uncomfortable, does his job and he does it well, if I'm not mistaken, it actually looks like he's having a good time. This isn't The Maltese Falcon, or even San Quentin, it's not meant to be, what it is is a pleasent diversion and definately a curio. I've seen a lot worse, most of which has been made within the past 10 years.

    What can one say about a film with Bogie as a shady wrestling promoter, Nat Pendleton playing a role he was born for, Ronald Reagan putting in a cameo appearance, the whole cast of Warner Brothers character actors (Frank McHugh, Allen Jenkins, etc.), and every Ozark hillbilly stereotype that's ever been invented? And as a bonus there's a rasslin' match that'd put Hulk Hogan to shame, complete with a character that recalls the legendary Haystacks Calhoun. No question that this is a "B" movie to end all "B" movies, but it's one that no Bogart or 1930's Warner Brothers fan should ever miss. This is exactly the sort of offbeat movie that TCM should feature at least once a day, and not at 3:00 in the morning, either.
