To Please a Lady Reviews
Probably best known as the second movie where Gable slaps Stanwyck. This time, it wasn't as well received as their first movie. Clark Gable plays old fashioned Indy racer, Mike Brannan who's involved in a fatal accident and kicked out of professional racing. Barbara Stanwyck plays Regina Forbes, a columnist who was instrumental in drumming Mike out of the business.
Mike must make do with what he's got. He goes underground and races under an alias, but soon Regina finds him and the sparks begin to fly. Stanwyck is beginning to play her older woman roles, where she a hard as nails business woman with a soft heart. Gable is just being Gable.
This is actually kind of a cool movie for classic racing fans. You get to see the some great open-wheeled midget race scenes including the legendary Mauri Rose driving his Novi and Joey Chitwood's famous stunt car show. But, other than that, it's just your standard faire.
It's worth a watch though.
