| The one about the gangster hiding out on the farm
"I'll Wait for You" from 1941 is an old plot, filmed in 1934 as "Hide- Out" and, with changes here and there, like "The Life of Jimmy Dolan," the bad guy who meets good people and reforms has been done many times.

This time it's Robert Sterling as Jack "Lucky" Wilson who is the guy who has to get out of town after putting the squeeze on some local merchants. Injured, he winds up on the farm of the Miller family, consisting of various animals and Ma and Pa Miller (Fay Holden and Henry Travers) and their two daughters, Lizzie (Virginia Weidler) and Pauline (Marsha Hunt). No big surprise, he falls for Pauline and grows to like and appreciate the family.

A good cast uplifts this. Robert Sterling is a little obvious as a tough guy, but Marsha Hunt is lovely as Pauline, and Virginia Weidler provides good fun as the feisty younger daughter. Paul Kelly is the detective after Lucky, and he gives a good performance as a not so hard-boiled lawman.

This is a decent film with a sweet love story, elevated by Hunt's performance. I saw her a few years ago at a Paramount 100th birthday celebration -- she was in her nineties, looked great, and gave a nice talk. An underrated actress.
