Don't Get Me Wrong #

Released 3/1/1937

Description: Don't Receive Me Wrong is a 1937 British comedy movie co-directed by Arthur B. Woods and Reginald Purdell and starring Maximum Miller and George E. Stone. It was made at Teddington Studios with sets designed by Peter Proud. Unlike few of Miller's Teddington movies which are actually lost, this still survives. Miller plays a fairground performer who meets a professor who claims to have invented a cheap substitute for petrol. They squad up and persuade a millionaire to finance them to develop and store the product, while unsavoury elements are keen to steal the formula and test all means to receive their hands on it, involving slapstick chases and double-crosses. It then turns out that the miracle fluid is diluted coconut oil, and the genius professor is an escaped lunatic. The millionaire finds himself taking the brunt of the disappointment.

Palmy Days Reviews:

First off: I've everytime liked this one - I thought it Eddie Cantor's greatest film, maybe partly because the 2 main songs in it were so unbelievable and summed up the early Hollywood musical for me. Second: it's a classic anyway. Third: coming back to it after a 15 year gap brings it home to me just how weird this would probably appear to the unwary who stumble across it. Notwithstanding its relentless wit and charm, belief in character, plot and set logic gotta be fully suspended for the 77 mins to receive the most out.Eddie is mistakenly employed as Efficiency Expert by scatty owner of an art deco bakery run by scantily clad females. He falls in love with the boss's daughter whilst gangly Charlotte Greenwood falls for him; meanwhile machinating phoney séancer Charles "Ming" Middleton and his henchmen are machinating in the background after their possibility to rob the boss. The workers exercise routines may be coyly exploitative - but remember many Japanese multinational companies around the world still test related if more modernized techniques on their benighted employees. Millions back then were probably thinking how lucky all the Goldwyn women were to have a job, even if only as delicious looking objects. Favorite bits: Bend Down Sister sung by Greenwood and the women with some great patterns arranged by Busby Berkeley; There's Nothing Too Nice For My Baby (but a Black-Face routine warning goes out for those with a low constitution) – delivered with such vim; Yes Yes! My Honey Told Yes Yes! (at the engagement party with even nicer patterns. Astounding to think he never recorded it commercially); Greenwood's admission that Cantor was the key to her ignition (Roll over R Kelly); at the séance Greenwood being surprised it was her dog talking to her; many more - the smart ass one liners come so quick it's difficult to pick the best.Cantor was an wonderful performer with zest and vitality up to the max, but it appears as time goes by he (with Al Jolson) becomes more and more of an acquired taste. This movie is quick funny and farcical as well as far-fetched fanciful and fluffy; I love it - launch not only your mind but your heart. Ya-da-da and Ohyoudon't, that's what Eddie had plenty of.


PALMY DAYS (United Artists, 1931), directed by Edward Sutherland, became Samuel Goldwyn's second annual Eddie Cantor production, and other laugh fest with dance numbers and smiling chorines, compliments from choreographer, Busby Berkeley. This being the shortest Cantor musical in the Goldwyn series (77 minutes), it also consists of the least amount of songs (a total of three), plus a handful of funny dialog as well as some violent physical comedy that would be considered something of a throwback during the Mack Sennett silent comedy days.In this venture, Eddie Cantor plays Eddie Simpson, a nervous tiny boy (as he was in his initial Goldwyn musical, WHOOPEE, in 1930, this time singing whenever he becomes excited), who becomes an unwitting assistant to Yolando (Charles Middleton), a phony spiritualist. Helen Martin (Charlotte Greenwood), a single girl in find for a husband, who manages a gymnasium, regularly attends Yolando's séances. Merry mix-ups follow when Helen mistakes Eddie for her future husband, while Eddie is mistaken for the predicted efficiency expert by Yolando's gullible but millionaire client, A.B. Clark (Spencer Charters), owner of a large bakery business. Eddie becomes interested with Clark's doll-faced daughter, Joan (Barbara Weeks), whom he believes is in love with him, but she is really interested in Steve Clayton (Paul Page). Because Eddie stands in the method of Yolando's corrupt scheme to rob Clark of his $25,000, he hires his two thugs, Joe (George Raft) and Plug Moynihan (Harry Woods) to do away with him, but Eddie has his own issues being pursued by the man-chasing Miss Martin who won't take no for an respond from her "Romeo."The musical numbers for PALMY DAYS include: "Bend Down Sister" by Ballard MacDonald and Con Conrad (sung by Charlotte Greenwood and Goldwyn girls); "There's Nothing Too Nice For My Baby" by Benny Davis, Harry Akst and Eddie Cantor (sung by Eddie Cantor in blackface); "My Honey Told Yes, Yes" by Cliff Mate (sung by Cantor/ performed by Goldwyn Girls); and "My Honey Told Yes, Yes" (finale reprise by Cantor and Greenwood). If the "My Honey Told Yes, Yes" score sounds familiar, it was soon used for the 1981 Steve Martin musical, PENNIES FROM HEAVEN.Aside from two production numbers with the Busby Berkeley overhead camera shots and kaleidoscopic routines, trademarks that would create him famous, PALMY DAYS details few very funny comedy routines, including Greenwood giving Cantor a workout in the gymnasium, even at one mission having him twisted in pretzel fashion like a contortionist; being offered a medicine ball with Cantor feeling it too large to swallow; and soon being pursued by gangsters (Raft and Woods), hiding out into the company gym locker room while the women prepare to take their everyday swim, thus having Eddie disguising himself as one of the women (looking almost amazingly like Jack Lemmon's cross dressing hero in the 1959 comedy classic, SOME LIKE IT HOT), and being forced to strip by Helen Martin for a shower and a dip into the pool. (Watch Eddie receive himself out of that!) The film is highlighted with a comedic chase in the Clark bakery involving Eddie, Helen, Yolando and his gang over the $25,000 which is hidden in the dough of bread. The one brief stage in which Eddie tries to present off his operation to Mr. Clark (Spencer Charters), is a tiny inside humor lifted from their comedy routine in WHOOPEE. And let's not overlook a line uttered by Cantor during a séance early in the story, "There is a Minneapolis in heaven, just as there is a St. Paul." The chemistry between Eddie Cantor and Charlotte Greenwood is priceless. It's a pity they didn't do other film together. In newest years, PALMY DAYS enjoyed some frequent cable tv revivals briefly on Turner Network Tv (TNT) in the early 1990s, the Nostalgia Channel, and on American Film Classics during the season of 1992-93. It was distributed on video cassette, and one of the six pack set of Cantor/Goldwyn musicals, but has since been discontinued, with the exception of ROMAN SCANDALS (1933) and KID MILLIONS (1934) which continued in video sale distribution for few years thereafter.PALMY DAYS would not rank as the American Movie Institute's top 100 comedies of the twentieth century, but it's worth viewing, particularly due to Cantor's buffoonery that at times pre-dates the 1960s comedies of Jerry Lewis, but not to the extreme, and/or spotting some future movie stars as George Raft (in a tiny role); watching the villainous Charles Middleton, five years before achieving fame as Ming the Merciless in the FLASH GORDON chaptered serials for Universal in 1936; and Betty Grable and Virginia Bruce, recognizable and visible in the opening dance routines. (***)


How can you NOT like Eddie Cantor? Even after all those years, his charisma is absolutely intact. You look at those large dark sad eyes once and you fall in love with that very generous and charismatic performer. He was a dynamo. And so cute! He spares nothing to please you and it is very effective. He's not that nice a singer, though. He had a too high-pitched voice.And what about the nice Charlotte Greenwood! How do I adore that powerful performer with her high kicks, her almost frightening physical stamina and energy, her generosity! She's old-school all right and very, very entertaining. She never fails to give you a very nice time. She's a stage stealer too. But we love her even more for it! See it if only for her as well as all the another films she's in! As for the plot, well, it is a pure slapstick comedy. You have to like the category but if you do as I do, you'll like the movie.Interesting to see a glimpse of Betty Grable as a teenager. Test to search her! Haha! One wishes she would have at least one stage with Eddie Cantor.See it, it's good.
