Quick Overview

Starring Lew Ayres, Maureen O'Sullivan, Louis Calhern, Edward Arnold,

Walter Catlett

Directed by Tay Garnett



Print: black/white

Runtime: 78 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



As indicated by its "catchphrase" title, Okay America is one of several

early-1930s films based on the exploits of gossip columnist Walter

Winchell. The big surprise here is that the Winchell counterpart is played

not by W.W. look-alike Lee Tracy, as was usually the case, but by baby-

faced Lew Ayres. Caring little how many lives he's destroyed in his pursuit

of sensationalism, columnist Larry Wayne (Lew Ayres) is arguably the

most-hated man on Broadway — and in some circles, the most influential.

Wayne sticks his nose in everyone's business, including Caponelike

gangster Alsotto (Edward Arnold) and the grief-stricken family of a

kidnapped girl (Margaret Lindsay). Motivated by his lust for power and

publicity, Wayne offers to rescue the kidnap victim, and in so doing

absolves himself of his past misdeeds — but not soon enough to avoid

the terrible vengeance of the unforgiving Alssoto, whom he has double-

crossed along the way. Its downbeat ending intact, Okay America was

effectively remade as Risky Business in 1939.
