| Lynn Bari Keeps Her Motor Running
Lloyd Nolan is the new beat cop on the East River pier. He's much taken with coffee shop waitress Lynn Bari. Her sister, Joan Valerie, however, is mixed up with thief and cop killer Douglas Fowley -- against her will.

It's a Code-compliant remake of the pre-code ME AND MY GAL, starring Spencer Tracy and Joan Bennett. Adrian Morris plays the same role in both movies. Earlier, the story was one of three in the silent WHILE NEW YORK SLEEPS. This version is a pretty good one for the year and budget; Miss Bari is top-billed and gives a lively performance, even though it lacks the dirt, grime and sparks of the older versions. Nolan, as always, is solid in his working-class personna, Miss Bari gets a few memorable wise cracks, and B director Eugene Forde gets through the effort in jig time, barely topping an hour in run time.
