Directed by Raoul Walsh • 1936 • United States
Starring Cary Grant, Joan Bennett, Walter Pidgeon
Cary Grant and Joan Bennett make for a most delightful crime-solving duo in this eccentric mix of gangster drama and screwball comedy. Eve Fallon (Bennett) is a spitfire manicurist turned ace newspaper reporter; Danny Barr (Grant) is her private-detective boyfriend hot on the trail of a ring of jewel thieves. After a stray bullet—fired by one of the gang members—kills a baby in a park, Eve and Danny join forces in order to take down the organization’s criminal mastermind (Walter Pidgeon) and see that justice is served. Don’t miss Grant displaying his ventriloquism skills.
