| Ridiculous, Time-Wasting, Minor Crime + Boxing Yarn
In his autobiography, Yakima Canutt doesn't mention They Never Come Back (1932) in which he obviously doubled for Regis Toomey in the hard-hitting boxing scenes. And no wonder! It's a time-wasting movie despite the presence of an attractive female threesome in the persons of Dorothy Sebastian, Greta Granstedt and Gertrude Astor. The male players, on the other hand, are strictly from hunger. It's enough to say that Kit Guard, in an uncredited role as Toomey's second, walks away with the big boys' acting honors. The boring script also rates as unintentionally ridiculous and Fred Newmeyer's direction (or rather lack of direction) totally inept.
