| Not Dynamite But Good Fun
Jimmy Durante is relatively subdued here. Maybe because his leading lady is Lupe Velez, who was not exactly a quiet or subtle performer herself. (I love her anyway.) This has a great supporting cast -- Tom Kennedy, Eugene Palette, many, many more.

The plot involves unsuccessful poet Norman Foster's being drawn into to the world of show biz. He begins to write gags for comic Durante, who terms them, and anything he likes, as dynamite.

Foster is smitten with Durante's flirtatious partner Velez. His wife Marian Nixon is patient -- sort of. Things get resolved and there's plenty of fun along the way.
