Quick Overview

Starring Anita Louise, Russell Hayden, Noah Beery Jr., Dick Purcell, Chick Chandler, Fay

Helm, George Cleveland

Directed by Robert Florey



Print: black/white

Runtime: 63 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Columbia's Two in a Taxi is perfect "Late Late Late Show" fare, just the sort of brisk, breezy

film with which one would want to greet the new sunrise. Cab driver Jimmy Owens (Russell

Hayden) hopes to push a hack just long enough to raise enough money-300 bucks, to be

exact—for his own gas station. He also intends to marry his longtime sweetheart Bonnie

(Anita Louise) as soon as he's on his feet financially. Alas, this plan hits a snag when the

couple breaks up over a silly misunderstanding; in addition, Jimmy manages to lose his

nest egg at every turn, even after collecting $1000 for capturing a gang of bank robbers. The

conformist travails of Jimmy and Bonnie are counterpointed by the the faintly Communistic

speeches delivered by a radical cabbie known as The Professor (Henry Brandon), whose

presence in the film adds a welcome (but never overdone) dash of vitriol.
