Movie Info

British humorist P. G. Wodehouse wrote the story upon which Piccadilly Jim was based. Frank Morgan and Robert Montgomery play a well-to-do father and son, who find themselves rivals in love. The object of their affection is Madge Evans, who likes them both but favors the son. Everything could have been wrapped up in eight reels, but MGM had a mania about lengthy running times, so Piccadilly Jim lumbers on at 100 minutes. Fortunately, such accomplished farceurs as Billie Burke, Robert Benchley and Eric Blore are around to pep up the dull spots.

This agreeable but inane farce can easily be forgotten.

75/100. What a stellar supporting cast, Eric Blore, Billie Burke Frank Morgan, Cora Witherspoon and Robert Benchley. All are excellent, especially Benchley and Blore. Robert Montgomery is quite good as well. Amusing story, and like all MGM productions at that time, it is sublime. Light, funny and very entertaining.
