Goofs

During the Race into town in that Big Beautiful Duesenberg, at 11:35 we see the odometer read 00102 miles and the trip odometer read 039. Then at 11:45 the trip odometer reads 044 and again at 12:00 it reads 043. The mileage on the trip goes backwards and the mileage stays the same at 00102 on the odometer. If that Duesenberg is still alive today it's worth millions. See more »

A complex affair
13 January 2019 | by jonerogersSee all my reviews

This is another very early print and i am really lucky to have the entire collection of the late Great Humphrey Bogart. This is an early Pre-code film and from 1932 one of Bogarts first films.

He plays an Aircraft pilot named Jim Leonard he is also a Designer and is called upon by his boss to take the lovely Carol Owen played by Dorothy Mackaill on her maiden flight. She is an Heiress to a fortune left by her father but un-be known to her that money has run out and her handouts are being made by a very rich executor to her fathers will Mr. Bruce Hardy played by Hale Hamilton. He has his eye on the lovely lady and sees that Jim likes her too and a relationship is growing.

She is told she has run out of money and the old man Bruce offers to support her and a rich lifestyle if she marries him but she loves Jim...She considers a show business career as a way out and her not having to marry Bruce, does she succeed?

Bogart plays a rare clean-cut good guy in this early film, a few years earlier it was silent movie era. it is a film with complex affairs going on and i am guessing without Bogart this would have not made it at all to the big screen. Its a short film just 67 minutes long.

watch this, its an early film and its from these early ones that todays films have grown from, actors and actresses that have inspired generation after generation...
