What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Riffraff

    Jean Harlow and Spencer Tracy shine in this social drama one couldn't dream to see in theaters nowadays. Just imagine a story about fast food employees going on strike in a 2014 mainstream American movie. Quite impossible, isn't it? So enjoy RIFFRAFF where you can even admire Jean Harlow canning tuna with her admirable hands. Highly recommended!
