  • Great fun

    The print shown on TCM this evening was more than a bit washed out, which is a shame. The acting, dialogue and story are worth the time, however. It is essentially a woman's picture with Bennett in most, if not all of the scenes. But George Raft does an excellent job (and so does Gladys George). Pidgeon is a bit miscast. Supposedly, Warners had considered doing the story with Cagney and Dietrich and that would've been just as good!

  • Quirky, but Enjoyable

    I saw "The House Across the Bay" tonight for the first time. The film had good performances. I particulary enjoyed Lloyd Nolan (I don't think I've seen him more dapper) and Walter Pidgeon. Joan Bennett wore great outfits, but I don't think 26 (according to the credit notes) costume changes was necessary. Also, Robert Osbourne is right in that Joan Bennett was a "dead ringer" for Heddy Lamarr with her hair died black. Bennett was very attractive. The happy ending makes up for what the TCM review refers to as "incongruous" scenes near the end. I agree those scenes are incongruous. Overall, though, I enjoyed this movie.

  • Cool Movie!

    I had never seen this movie before. It was pretty good. Bennett looks great and glamorous(the singing is not so good). The men are wonderful in the movie. To have pidgeon and Raft in one film is a real treat! I like the story.
