Movie Info

Wounded criminal Lucky Wilson (Robert Montgomery) takes refuge in a small Connecticut farm. He falls in love with Maureen O'Sullivan, who at first is unaware of his criminal record. Lucky is fully prepared to shoot his way out when the cops come calling, but he is softened by O'Sullivan's affections and finally agrees to turn himself in. Screenwriters Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett leaven several potentially melodramatic sequences with some first-rate comic dialogue; many of the funniest scenes belong to nightclub owners Henry Armetta and Hermann Bing. Hide-Out was remade in 1941 as I'll Wait for You, a title which rather gave away the ending.

Considerably helped by the fine supporting cast, who make this mush somewhat palatable.

Audience Reviews for Hideout


Grade B, lightweight movie. Slow moving in parts. I always like Edward Arnold, he has a lot of presence just by being in in the room. And, a very young Mickey Rooney.

Perky little B elevated by a well cast group of players.
