Movie Info

The S.S. Gigantic competes with the S.S. Colossal in a luxury liner race from New York to France. S.B. Bellows (W.C. Fields), the bumbling brother of the owner of the Gigantic, accidentally wrecks the sophisticated engine of his sibling's ship, built by brilliant engineer Bob Hayes (Leif Erickson). Meanwhile, radio entertainer Buzz Fielding (Bob Hope), aboard the Gigantic with his girlfriend, Dorothy (Dorothy Lamour), is hoping to win so he can pay alimony to his three ex-wives.

Critic Reviews for The Big Broadcast of 1938

All Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Big Broadcast of 1938 brings back to the screen W.C. Fields, which would have been five if it hadn't also returned twenty or more others, each and every one of whom had to occupy the screen for the duration of five to ten minutes.

  • Since W. C. Fields heads the passenger list, there's plenty of excitement.
