Not a great effort on the part of anyone involved, ME AND MY GAL is a wisecracking attempt at comedy that falls like a two-day-old souffle. Tracy is a young policeman who patrols the Manhattan waterfront; Bennett is a cynical waitress at a local hash house. Burns is Bennett's sister and a

much more naive type as proven by the fact that she falls hard for Walsh, a no-goodnik gangster of the lowest level. Burns is fascinated by Walsh and has been totally taken in by his snakelike charm, but Tracy sees through the malfeasant and nabs the crook, just before he is about to commit the

greatest crime of all--capturing Burns' heart. With the little sister saved from that fate, Bennett is free to marry the cop of her dreams, Tracy. It's a padded 78-minute picture and the only effective comedy scene is a parody of STRANGE INTERLUDE done by Tracy and Bennett. That movie was out just

ahead of this one and created such a sensation that Fox must have thought they'd have some fun at MGM's expense and called it "Strange Inner-tube" in the satire. The villain, Walsh, had been a silent screen star with a large following, who did some Douglas Fairbanks-type roles. At one point, he

was to be the star of BEN-HUR (the silent version) but backstage politics caused him to be replaced by Ramon Novarro. Walsh's brother was Raoul Walsh, the famed director, and the two worked together here as well as a number of other times.
