The Toast of New York Reviews
Jim Fisk and his two friends are notorious robbers who recently stole a lot of confederate bonds and hope to exchange them for control over gold on Wall Street. They pair with a gullible train company owner and ultimately spin their bonds into control over all of the gold in the United States, but will riches destroy the group of friends and Wall Street?

Rowland Lee, director of The Count of Monte Cristo, The Son of Monte Cristo, Captain Kid, Son of Frankenstein, Powder Town, and One Rainy Afternoon, delivers Toast of New York. The storyline for this picture is well done and contains wonderful characters. The cast delivers awesome performances and includes Cary Grant, Edward Arnold, Frances Farmer, Billy Gilbert, and Donald Meek.

I came across this upcoming movie on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and had to DVR it. This was so fun. This is a classic movie fan's dream with dynamic over the top characters with a sly and crafty Cary Grant with his witty one liners and playful performance. I am a big fan of this movie and would recommend it strongly to classic movie fans. It may not be Grant's best movie, but it's a classic Cary Grant performance.
