Stoner says, "Walk This Way"
I hate to talk about movie history when there is a deliciously funny and romantic story ahead, but I will anyway. The story plot for this romance is so simple, yet so very unique and complex, I would do you an injustice to try to describe the story line in any more but the broadest terms.
One of the wealthiest young ladies in the world will fall in love with an insurance salesman a month before her wedding to one of the wealthiest young men in the world. That’s all you need to know before you start this amazing journey, but let me tell you about some movie trivia that may interest one or two of you. . . . . . OK . . . . It fascinates me, and I know I may be the only one it fascinates. . . . I’m so easy to please. . . . . Anyway, . . . . First the lollipops.
George Smith sold lumps of candy on a stick and in 1931 trademarked the name Lollipop. . . And in this 1934 story it seems everyone knows what a lollipop is except the wealthy heiress. . . . Next, . . . If you are a fan of older movies and television you are probably familiar with Loretta Young. When Loretta Young began making moving pictures in the silent era, her two sisters also made movies. One of her sisters is Polly Ann Young, the dark haired girl in this story. The other sister changed her name for the movies.
This sister once famously said that her sister Loretta was so skinny that she got all the big movie parts, but she got all the boys. This girl would marry another silent actor who became a director, and they would have a son Robert, who would become a television star in the mid 1970’s on Los Angeles station KTLA channel 5 as Grimsley, host of horror movies.
Her son Robert wrote to me a few years ago thanking me for sharing his mother’s movies and mentioned that his mother passed while he was sitting next to her bed and they were both watching a Tarzan marathon on the Turner Classic Movie channel. This sister changed her screen name to Sally Blane, the star of this romantic comedy.
Before you begin, there is one historic scene that I need to mention that will explain the teaser title. . . . Tom Ricketts plays the part of Stoner the butler, and for the first time in a motion picture you can watch as the distinguished butler asks the gang to ‘Walk this way’ . . . . . And they all oblige in the funniest way. Now you can pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
