She Calls Me ‘Jimmy,’ Your Honor
You can count the ‘perfect’ romantic chic-flicks on one hand . . . I don’t need to name them, you can remember laughing with a heart full of joy as the two love-birds meet and fall hopelessly in love . . . then crying unashamedly as disaster pulls them apart . . . then when they finally get together at the end the world is a wonderful place again.
This adventure will pull your heart and your emotions from one side to the other so many times that you’ll be positively worn out before the long anticipated happy ending. So many times, it looks like they will get back together, and so many strange disasters happen that will keep them apart . . . honestly . . . how much can we take?
Every time the two lovers get within kissing distance something happens to push them apart again . . . how much can we take? . . . . Sorry, I already said that . . . it's just that this roller coaster of love is positively wearing me out . . . enough already! . . .
Let me tell you the genesis of the plot and then let you ride this coaster of love for yourself . . . Pretty Mary Smith is in court for vagrancy and the judge is ready to throw the book at her. An undercover officer offered her money and she took it, then protesting to the court that she was not soliciting, but just waiting for her fiancé to meet her.
She isn't very convincing, and the judge is just about to toss her in jail when a drunk playboy stands up in court and claims that he is the man she was waiting for. The judge is skeptical and asks the drunk playboy if he ever played poker . . . when the drunk answers in the affirmative the judge tells him that he is going to call the drunken man’s bluff and marry the two on the spot.
Thus, begins one of the most intriguing, the most interesting, the most spellbinding love stories that this old soul has ever watched. I am amazed at how much people and relationships in 1932, almost a hundred years ago, are the same as today . . . This story could have been filmed yesterday . . . but not any better than it was done back in 1932. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
