“Jo Swerling and Robert Riskin, two of Hollywood’s most agile scenarists, have written a riotous script for The Whole Town’s Talking…topped off with a splendid dual performance by Edward G. Robinson, it may be handsomely recommended as the best of the new year’s screen comedies.”
– Andre Sennwald, The New York Times
“John Ford directs this snazzy gangster drama/comedy that effectively mixes in melodrama and silliness…a sheer joy to watch.”
– Dennis Schwartz, Ozus’ World Movie Reviews
The legendary John Ford directs a sparkling screenplay by Jo Swerling and Robert Riskin, The Whole Town’s Talking (1935), starring Edward G. Robinson in double roles as a mild-mannered clerk and a notorious gangster who happen to look remarkably alike. Trouble, of course, ensues, along with a delightful screwball romance featuring the scrumptious Jean Arthur. Based on a story by W. R. Burnett, who also wrote the source material for Robinson’s breakthrough film, Little Caesar (1931).
