WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING, THE
Edward G. Robinson does double duty as "Jonesy" Jones, a mild-mannered clerk, and "Killer" Mannion, a gangster recently escaped from prison with whom Jonesy unfortunately shares a remarkable resemblance. It was a breakthrough film for Jean Arthur, who plays the wisecracking coworker for whom Jonesy secretly pines, establishing the screen persona that would make her a star. Director John Ford shows off his chops with this energetic urban comedy, working from a clever script by ace screenwriters Robert Riskin (IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT) and Jo Swerling (PLATINUM BLONDE). DIR/PROD John Ford; SCR Robert Riskin, Jo Swerling; PROD Lester Cowan. U.S., 1935, b&w, 93 min. NOT RATED
