I always find myself waiting for Cagney to come back onscreen. He gives one of the great comic performances here, easily outclassing that self-righteous ass played by Fonda.
Considering the starpower involved, both in front of and behind the camera, this has no right to be as bad as it is. A bloated mess that feels about twice its run time. Total shit. A low point in all involved's careers.
It just wasn't that good, and that's sad because there are so many great actors in this picture.
Yikes. So many good actors, and yet...
Une comédie très distrayante malgré un Fonda un peu mal à l'aise
What ... is that photo from?
Where's Mr. Fonda and/or Mr. Lemmon?
I love this film! Henry Fonda's performance should have been nominated for an Oscar! :D
