Ball, who was born for the parts Ginger Rogers sweats over, tackles her "emotional" role as if it were sirloin and she didn't care who was looking.
A dispiriting tale.
This Damon Runyon tale affords Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball roles very different than their usual forte: she's a bit of a anxious shrew, and he's a bit of a limp milksop. The rest of the cast adopts the lower Broadway pastiche Runyon so loved, that of warm-hearted hustlers out to con the world if necessary, but always for a good cause. Runyon himself produced this effort that could use some of the sparkle that Guys & Dolls has got in spades. Lucy gives her best performance, making this film the best example of what might've been had the ol' comedienne played it straight for the rest of her career instead of going television.
Henry is such a doormat in this you just want to shake him but a very fine supporting cast make it worthwhile and Lucy is mesmerizing in a completely atypical role.
