Audience Reviews for Bad Bascomb

Margaret O'Brien is one of the most adorable and articulate child actors ever, and her chemistry with anyone on screen is always magical. Here with Wallace Beery -- his love interest, so to speak -- that chemistry is unmistakable. Despite the copious amounts of bloodshed in this one, it is still a comedy. O'Brien heals Beery with her child's amorous ways, reforming him and transforming him from a hard-boiled outlaw to an altruistic, self-sacrificing human being. Oddly enough, the ending is not a typically comic one. We are left with the impression that Beery's optimism about his return may actually be just that, and he might actually never return.
