Take a Chance (1933) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring James Dunn, June Knight, Lillian Roth, Cliff Edwards, Lilian Bond, Dorothy Lee,

Charles 'Buddy' Rogers

Directed by Monte Brice, Laurence Schwab



Print: black/white

Runtime: 82 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Take a Chance was based on the hit Broadway musical of the same name, though only one

of the original songs, Eadie Was a Lady, has been retained. The thinnish plot involves the

misadventures of a pair of pickpockets, played on Broadway by Jack Haley and Sid Silvers

and on film by James Dunn and Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards. Tired of fleecing the suckers in

a travelling carnival, our heroes head to Broadway, where they get mixed up with gangsters.

The soubrette role originally played on stage by Ethel Merman is herein essayed by Lillian

Roth, hardly a fair trade. Billed last in the huge cast is Marjorie Main, 15 years before

stepping into her trademark role as Ma Kettle.
