Madge Evans and Robert Montgomery in an Exciting Ride on a Transcontinental Bus.
I borrowed the above sub-title from the 1934 New York Times review of the film - it pretty much sums up things.
When I put the movie on, I really didn't have much of an idea of what the movie was about. I knew there was a scruffy Bob & a kid at the end, but didn't expect what I watched. I liked it. It reminded me of the 1970's disaster movies a bit. Everyone is stuck on a boat or plane, and you get to learn a bit about everyone before the movie really gets going.
Haven't seen the movie? Go check out the plot synopsis on EarlofHollywood.com. Interested in a reproduction movie poster for the film? It's actually a pretty nice one - check out more on a past post here.
And my favorite quote from the movie - Letty to Legs: "You're too big for one man. You ought to incorporate."
