Audience Reviews for Jimmy the Gent


Jimmy is incredibly charismatic in this making the rather preposterous story work. This was early in Bette's career and while flashes of her spark shine through she looks frightful in a rigid Jean Harlow hairdo and pencil thin brows.

it's fun but cagney is almost a parody of himself here

Michael Curtiz does fantastic things while working within a visually restrictive story. This whole film is filled with a sense of immediacy, and the energy that it exudes is outstanding. The dialogue is witty, snappy and often very funny, and it is the predominant force that moves the picture along. Memorable performances from an excellent cast, with stand-outs from the great James Cagney and the equally great Bette Davis.
