  • Joan Bennett & Spencer Tracy

    A lot is usually made of the Hepburn-Tracy film pairings, but I think he has equally great chemistry with Joan Bennett. Her sassiness in ME AND MY GAL reminds me a lot of Jean Harlow. There's another film this duo made at Fox earlier in 1932, called SHE WANTED A MILLIONAIRE. I would love to see TCM air it.

    Very entertaining. One thing I don't get, director-wise... the director put in an early gimmick, having the girl make Tracy put his hat put on straight, followed by him making her get rid of her gum. After that, a number of times she had him fix his hat, but he failed to make her get rid of her gum. Seemed like an obvious tie-together gag, but the director didn't use it. Note to other TCM reviewers, it's melodrama, not mellow-drama. And while I'm busy picking nits, at one point the bad guy pulls out a Luger, threatening a family, and says, "Ya know what this is?" and the patsy says, "yeah, it's a revolver." 'Scuse me, a Luger is not a revolver, it's a semi-automatic. I liked how Joan Bennett struck a match on her ass near the end of the movie. Bermuda, yeah, that's where the onions come from. And my god, didn't they get completely drunk at weddings back then... oh, I guess that hasn't changed.

    Very entertaining, for an early Tracy.

    An always-entertaining and amusing romantic-comedy with a spice of melodrama. Tracy is a not-too-brainy cop who finds a gangster, director Raoul Walsh's brother George, living in the attic of Bennett's sister's house. Snappy dialogue move the light-hearted, humorous elements of the story along smoothly, but the dramatic scenes fall flat. Amusing, charming and enjoyable entertainment. I give 3.5/5.

  • "It's not a halibut, it's a striped bass"

    • 10/1/12

    An entertaining little film that spits in the face of Prohibition (like many 1932 films) even more than the tough guy spits in the face of the dizzy drunk (who had some funny lines, like "a fish just stole my bait!"). Bennett's gum-smacking gal referring to others as bezoks ("ya big flat-footed bezok!" etc) was funny, but the funniest line was when Tracy's cop said "I thought (Al) Smith was gonna win." (Smith lost the 1928 presidential race in a lanslide). It seems that almost every movie Spencer made, there's pontification over politics. Tracy acted well and shared a bit of timelessness with his complaining that if you don't kiss a woman soon, you're moving too slow, but if you do, you're being fresh.

  • "me and my gal" a good blend
