27 February 2019 | HotToastyRag
| Paul Muni has comic timing!
There's a reason why Paul Muni was nominated for Best Actor at the 1934 Hot Toasty Rag Awards. In Hi, Nellie!, he played a fast-talking newspaper man completely unlike any other character he ever played. There was no makeup, no aging process, no historical figure to mimic; Paul had to play a regular fellow, someone he rarely played. And while It Happened One Night was busy sweeping the Oscars, Paul snagged a nomination at the Rags because he ran circles around Clark Gable. Paul could have played Peter Warren, but then again, so could any number of actors, including those who famously turned the role down.

In this funny, fast-paced hidden gem, Paul is forced to take over the heartthrobs column in his newspaper after a disagreement with the editor, Berton Churchill. He gets made fun of by his fellow reporters, including his ex-girlfriend, Glenda Farrell, until he gets embroiled in a murder case. Then, Paul and Glenda pull together to crack the case! Seriously, folks, rent this cute flick. Paul is incredibly handsome, has unexpectedly great comic timing, and shows a side he doesn't usually show the audience: a normal fellow!
