Audience Reviews for Laughing Sinners

Tidy little morality play is hokey at times but the star pair have chemistry to burn and both look great.

Laughing Sinners (1931)

Ivy 'Bunny' Stevens is a night club dancer and singer, but has it bad for her traveling salesman boyfriend, Howard Palmer (Neil Hamilton). When Howard dumps poor Ivy for his rich bosses daughter, Ivy takes it hard and is about to jump off of a bridge when a very friendly Salvation Army man, Carl Loomis (Clark Gable) stops her and gives her something else to live for.

Good-hearted Carl isn't preachy. He's fallen far from grace himself and can't judge anybody. When Ivy meets back up with Howard, who puts the moves on her, she regrets falling for his lines the next morning and doesn't feel worthy.

Carl, true to form, doesn't blame Ivy, telling her that if she wants to go back with Howard and that will make her happy, that he's all for that, but she shouldn't feel like she's not worthy to come back to the Salvation Army, because we all fall from grace sometimes. Naturally, Carl doesn't feel the same for Howard and gives him a nice sock on the jaw.
