In the 1930s Eddie Cantor made a series of pleasant, sometimes sexy, consistently entertaining, quick paced comedies. This is, in my opinion, one of the better ones. The songs are wonderful, the gags are funny, the 1930's atmosphere is thick, and Eddie himself is so energetic throughout he seems to float.It's a unbelievable picture. Very suggested for 1930's movie buffs and musical comedy enthusiasts.
Utterly hilarious Pre Code musical with two heavy and riotous Busby Berkeley dance sequences, this Eddie cantor farce was a large success in Depressed 1932. Filmed and released in the musical lull years 1931 and 1932 when a musical was supposed to be box office poison, this bull snorter is genuinely toe tapping and rib tickling. Imagine seeing this in a 3000 seater full of unhappy folks needing a laugh! THE KID FROM SPAIN gotta have blown the roofs off with thunderclaps of laughter from one side of the country to the other. It is on record as the highest rentals /film hire between 1932 and 1939 with $2.6m returned to the distributor. This means it gotta have sold over $6m in tickets...in the most economically terrible time of the decade and at a time when ticket prices were in cents. Imagine today if seventy million Americans went to one movie in its first release! We're talking TITANIC lvl ticket sales. Well THE KID FROM SPAIN did exactly that. The two dance sequences are truly spectacular and very funny...the finale WHAT A PEFECT COMBINATION is about risqué as it gets in reverse rude lyrics given he is singing about "I'm the lock and you're the key". Warners Bros clearly handed Busby their studio key after this UA success and booked a box office berth, ready to shuffle off to their 42nd Road box office honeymoon. This KID is worth adopting for your home.
THE KID FROM SPAIN (Samuel Goldwyn/United Artists, 1932), directed by Leo McCarey, with choreography by Busby Berkeley, stars Eddie Cantor in his third annual musical-comedy for Samuel Goldwyn. Borrowing the formula from his initial Goldwyn musical, WHOOPEE (1930), switching from wild west to Mexico so not to give the impression of a remake, Cantor once again plays a nervous wreck who goes berserk (this time at the sound of a whistle), and carries on the same surname of Williams. Should these two characters in question be twins? Maybe, but there's only one Eddie Cantor, and for the record, this is not a sequel, just an original premise with recycled ideas.The storyline starts in a college where Eddie Williams (Eddie Cantor) is found hiding under the sheets on the bed in a girls' dormitory by the stern Martha Oliver (Theresa Maxwell Conover). Although Eddie assumes the blame, it's his Mexican roommate, Ricardo (Robert Young), responsible for the practical joke. Because of this, both classmates, so close to graduation, are expelled. Ricardo, returning to his native Mexico, invites Eddie to accompany him. On their method to their destination, Ricardo stops at the First National Bank where Eddie waits outside. Parked on the very spot where the getaway vehicle was supposed to be, Eddie encounters fresh passengers in the back seat, that of the bank robbers who mistake Eddie as their getaway driver. Because Eddie is an eye witness, the bank robbers kidnap Eddie and take him to the Mexican borderline. While in Mexico, Eddie meets again with Ricardo, who, by now, is having romantic issues with Anita Gomez (Ruth Hall), whose father, Alonzo (Noah Beery) prefers she marry Pancho (John Miljan), the best bullfighter of all Mexico. Eddie, pursued by Crawford (Robert Emmett O'Connor), an American police inspector, masquerades as Don Sebastian II, matador from Spain visiting Mexico for the upcoming bullfight. Complications ensue when Eddie not only has to war the bull in the ring to avoid arrest, but to avoid the man-chasing Rosalie (Lyda Roberti) also hot on his trail.The highlight bullfighting sequence is something of an inspiration for future film comedians of Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, Red Skelton or even Jerry Lewis had they handled such a routine. However, future famed TV comedienne Lucille Ball eventually performed such strategies in an equally funny bullfighting sequence in one of the episodes of "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" (1958) co-starring Desi Arnaz as her husband, Ricky Ricardo (a related name to Robert Young's hero in THE KID FROM SPAIN, by which he's named both Ricky and Ricardo), with unique guest star, Maurice Chevalier. A related case here and to the LUCY tool is that both Eddie and Lucy mistake the current bull for a tamed one for the bullfight. And let's overlook the bullfighting climax featuring Lou Costello, the another half of the Abbott and Costello comedy team, in Mexican HAYRIDE (Universal, 1948), with an added premium with Costello riding the bull bareback.Besides nice comedy, whether physical or verbal, with some gags and one-liners right out of from the vaudeville days, there's time out for songs by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby including: "The College Song" (with lyrical lines recited by numerous college co-eds, including a very young Betty Grable); "In the Moonlight" (sung by Eddie Cantor); "Look What You've Done" (sung by Lyda Roberti and Eddie Cantor); Untitled dance number (performed by Grace Poggi); "What a Excellent Combination" (sung by Eddie Cantor and Goldwyn Girls); and "What a Excellent Combination" (reprise/finale, sung by Cantor and Roberti).Also in the helping cast are J. Carroll Naish as Pedro; Stanley Fields as Jose; Sidney Franklin as himself, an American matador who performs a straight-laced bullfighting stage before Cantor takes over and turns it into a burlesque spoof; Walter Walker (The college dean); Paul Porcasi (The border guard); and Edgar Connor as Blueboy, the Negro bull handler. Connor's movie credits are few, but much well noted for his sizable role as Al Jolson's sidekick in HALLELUJAH, I'M A BUM (United Artists, 1933).THE KID FROM SPAIN has all the ingredients for a successful Cantor comedy, although some of his humor, and one production number in which he performs in black-face, may not impress contemporary audiences. Another than finding Robert Young testing a Mexican, sporting mustache and passable spoken accent, there's one stage where Cantor says the love starved Roberti to shut her mouth in a manner that's too true to be funny, particularly after watching the sad expression on her face. Movie buffs can sit back and test to spot some future movie stars amongst the chorus girls, including Betty Grable recognizable in the opening number, the blonde haired Paulette Goddard in the background as Cantor as he looks directly into the camera while vocalizing "In the Moonlight" before strolling with the women and singing directly to them; and Toby Wing, the "Young and Healthy" woman from 42nd STREET (Warner Brothers, 1933), visible in the first two song numbers. One cannot support but notice the women seen in the college opening to be the same ones in the Nexican sequence, this time in Mexican attire sporting shoe polish in their black hair.THE KID FROM SPAIN, which formerly aired on commercial tv in the 1960s and 1970s, was soon transported to cable networks in the 1980s as CBN (now The Family Channel), The Nostalgia Channel, Turner Network Tv (1991), American Film Classics (1993-94) and finally Turner Classic Films where it premiered September 2, 2007. Formerly accessible on video cassette, it's the sort of film that will remain in memory for anyone who's seen and enjoyed this 96 minute laugh feast with impressive Busby Berkeley production numbers.
