The Big Hangover Reviews

Norman Krasna, who won an Oscar for writing PRINCESS O'ROURKE, takes on producing and directing chores as well in this odd film about a man who gets dizzy at the mere sniff of any alcohol. Johnson is an attorney with a strange allergy to booze, the result of having been almost drowned by casks of brandy in the basement of a monastery. Waram is his boss and Elizabeth Taylor is the daughter who helps him overcome the allergy. The secondary story has to do with Johnson deciding between being a rich man's attorney or taking up the cudgel for the poor and oppressed. During this film Taylor was being courted by Glenn Davis, famous footballer with West Point. Good supporting cast includes Leon Ames.
