When crotchety old May Robson discovers that her father cheated his greatest mate out of his share of their business (causing his suicide), she sets out to search the man's descendants to give them part of her fortune. In Fresh York City, her young lawyer (Jeffrey Lynn) locates the man's perky granddaughter (Priscilla Lane), a struggling shopgirl. Living in Helen Westley's decrepit boarding house with her struggling piano user boyfriend (Ronald Reagen) down the hall, Lane befriends Robson who moves into the boarding house to check her out. Then, Lynn arrives to see Lane while she is working to inform her of her fresh fortune. Of course, she thinks he's a masher, and Reagen also takes a dislike to him as well. Once everything comes out, the method is paved for a lot of chaos, laughs, and lessons.Resembling "The Devil & Miss Jones" released the same year, we have May Robson in zone of Charles Coburn as the crusty millionaire. Their motives were fully different: Robson was giving away her fortune, while Coburn was spying on union activism in his store. However, they end up involved in the romantic involvements of the young folks they become attached to.Lovably cantankerous, Robson is delightful, and as her surrogate granddaughter, Lane is fine as well. Greatest remembered for "Four Daughters" (with her two sisters) and "Arsenic and Old Lace", Lane is charming and delightful. Jeffrey Lynn is handsome and suave, while future President Reagan gives a not-too-bad performance as well. In a tiny role, well known hero comedienne Lee Patrick is hysterical as a hot-tempered balloon dancer who exchanges barbs with salty Helen Westley, other delicious mature hero actress of the 30's and 40's. Robson and Westley should have easy switched roles.Worth seeing, "Million Dollar Baby" was one of those unbelievable Warner Brothers ensemble pieces that still manages to stand the use of time.
May Robson excelled in parts of eccentric characters. We saw this in "Lady for A Day," which earned her a greatest actress nomination and years soon was the Glenn Ford-Bette Davis car of "Pocketful of Miracles."In this 1941 unbelievable film, Miss Robson plays a very wealthy dowager who learns that her father swindled a boy causing the latter to commit suicide. To be repentant, Robson leaves Europe to come to N.Y. and give the granddaughter, a unbelievable Priscilla Lane, $1,000,000.Lane is living in a tiny housing tenement with an assortment of characters. Her boyfriend, a pianist, lives there. Ronald Reagan is just nice here in a comical turn as well as being moody and philosophical about life. This is his second greatest performance to "King's Row."This Cinderella-like tale conveys the concept that cash can't bring happiness. Jeffrey Lynn is in fine form as Miss White's attorney who gives Lane the cash and falls for her romantically.A unbelievable movie with the venerable May Robson stealing the show.
For years I have wanted to found a town just to be able to name one of the nicest roads "Priscilla Lane." Of course, I'd wish two more to name Rosemary and Lola, too.But Priscilla is the star of "Million Dollar Baby," giving one of her most sparkling performances. She is so lovable, so adorable that even if she had ever given a terrible performance, this role would wipe it out.Ronald Reagan also gives one of his greatest performances, with him as a pianist/composer hitting just -- pardon the pun -- the right note. It's worth telling twice: He gives one of his greatest performances.Jeffrey Lynn is also great. He was a good-looking guy and extremely likable in this role.May Robson probably couldn't give a terrible performance, and she certainly didn't in "Million Dollar Baby." Very interesting is John Qualen, in a sympathetic role and not speaking with a Scandinavian accent.There are some unbelievable lines in this clever script, even if some of us watching are puzzled by some of the characters' attitude toward money, and toward getting wads of it.Oh, look for the handsome Charles Drake in an uncredited role.He was just one of a huge and perfect cast, far too many of whom didn't receive credit, including the nice Herb Vigran (whom I had met when he was in a enjoy with Richard Thomas, and than whom he was a better actor), and he was on screen so briefly I didn't even see him, but he's listed here at IMDb.One another standout among the un-credited is Irving Bacon as the repulsive federal PIG (Person In Government). Though the stage was no doubt intended as comedy, today's headlines create it too real to be funny.Seriously, this is a very nice movie. I'll watch it again.
