For Me and My Gal

Beat cop Danny Dolan, a remarkably relaxed Spencer Tracy, tries to keep the dockside chaos at bay, while romancing wise-cracking waitress Joan Bennett. Her sister is married, but hasn’t cut her romantic ties to a gangster, who plans a “Rififi”-like heist while hiding out in her attic. Filled with smart talk and a very racy wrestle on the couch, this Pre-Code rediscovery from Fox is a treat. “Everything about the picture works: it’s funny, romantic, suspenseful, and sentimental in the good sense, the dialog is sharp and sassy, and the two leads are terrific.” (DVD Talk)
