Mathilda ComontTerry Jr. Phillip CooperThe small fry of the underworld, the bookies and those who nibble on the fringe of the big money, are saying their say for the microphones from the Warner Theatre screen in "Reckless Living," which is based on the stage play "The Up and Up.
Making bad gin and whisky, they explain, is all right because they can get away with it. Accepting racing bets is more profitable but also more dangerous, because they realize that there is a law against betting on the races. Played expertly and with some degree of truth by Ricardo Cortez, Mae Clark and Norman Foster, it makes fair enough entertainment that is revealing in its atmosphere and meager in its story.
Bee and Doggie are going straight, because they love each other and also because they are afraid of the law. They run a little apartment, speakeasy, making their own booze, and they are saving their money to buy a gas station in New Jersey. But Doggie likes to play the horses, and the dice also have an enormous fascination for his twitching fingers. The big shot in their professional life is Curley, who loves Bee and in his spare time is the king of the bookmakers. When Doggie gambles away the last of their little capital, Curley sets the couple up in a fashionable apartment, behind which he operates.
In the argot of the underworld they are operating a front for him. That is still "legitimate," but not so much so. The police might not know where the line stops. In the end Doggie braces up and buys his little gas station in West Orange. His transformation is miraculous and pretty dull, but the police raids and the operations of the bookmakers are interesting. Cyril Gardner's direction is competent and conventional. Flint's play.

It opens in one of those cinematic hell-holes in the Caribbean, where the sailors order gin straight and the dancing girls draw red roses across their lips to show the devil in them. Into this maelstrom of dank passions stalks honest Sam Whalan, skipper of a tramp freighter. He pushes a Spaniard.
John Lewis returns to ‘heartwarming’ Christmas advertising with Moz the Monster
The Spaniard pushes back. Sam is a little tight, so he picks up a chair and dashes madly about in all directions. Maybe it is the camera, but Sam seems to be giving an imitation of an old woman stirring pudding as he swings his chair. That is only the beginning of Sam's adventures. There are many more laughs later on; some of them intentional. As melodrama, "His Woman" never manages to be convincing, or even very interesting. Its humor is a little better.
When Sam staggers back to his ship and finds a baby outside his cabin, life becomes complex. He learns to like the little vagrant and he fumbles with milk bottles while his crew shakes its collective head. When he brings Sally Clark on board to give the baby a woman's care, trouble starts all over again.
Sally claims to be a missionary's daughter, but the first mate knows better.
He leers evilly at her, and Sam, who is better with his fists than with chairs, knocks him overboard. That is murder. It takes "His Woman" a half hour more to clear the decks for the wedding. The most effective member of the cast is the baby, a rather remarkable infant who is complete master of his limited emotional equipment. When Mr.
