| Oomph!
You've gotta love the movie which gave Ann Sheridan her big break! She's wonderful here as a down-and-out waitress who falls for smooth roughneck Joe Fabrini (George Raft). Not to be outdone, Ida Lupino scores even bigger (THE DOORS MADE ME DO IT!) You'll never look at a garage the same way again! The Warner Bros. stock players are in incredible form (Alan Hale, Roscoe Karns, George Tobias, etc.) and the script by Wald and Macaulay never lets them down for a second. It's mile-a-minute banter delivered by pros (this film played a big part in landing bigger roles for Bogie). Enjoy!
