Critic Reviews for Barbary Coast
Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur hammer out a bouncing melodrama of San Francisco's sin and salad days in Barbary Coast.
A wide-open San Francisco, circa 1890, is the background for one of Howard Hawks's intelligent love triangles.
It's an entertaining but lesser Hawks film, too conventional in its storytelling to kick up any dust.
Any self-respecting San Franciscan needs to give Barbary Coast a spin.
The primitive San Francisco is imbued with a lusty spirit, comprised of mud in the streets, tinkly pianos and crooked card games.
Audience Reviews for Barbary Coast
A bit heavy on the ham in a couple of places but entertaining nontheless, Edward G. is fine as always although he should have rethought the earring. He and Miriam are a fine pair even though he despised her offscreen.
