The Lemon Drop Kid
Dir. Marshall Neilan (1934).
Damon Runyon's guys and dolls are at the races in veteran Neilan's chuckle-inducing flick starring staccato Lee Tracy as a tipster who leaves the track with the law at his heels and loses his heart to small town sweetie Helen Mack. William Frawley who is outstanding as Gloomy Willie returned to play the role in the inferior 1951 Bob Hope remake.
