I should warn readers that this movie is pre-code and that it contains, in particular, excessive trampiness and reckless driving. Still, I think it’s worth risking the children’s emotional health for the brief airport scene alone. Everyone should see that scene, what going to the airport was like, and as for the kids — we always have serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

Open thread.

PS. “You’d rouse the John Gilbert in any man.”
