Biff!

Spencer Tracy in QUICK MILLIONS doesn’t mess around with grapefruit, he just punches ’em inna face.

The auteur responsible for this dreadfulness is the subject of this week’s The Forgotten, over at The Daily Notebook. Rowland Brown, kind of the anti-Clarence Brown. It’s like they wouldn’t let him direct at Warner Brothers because he was too Warner Brothers for them.

  1. Not sure but, I think The Forgotten link may not be working. May just be me. No need to post .

  2. Works for me… well, if you Google “Mubi” then click to the notebook, and scroll down, you’ll find it.

  3. Thanks, it was my mistake.

  4. David Boxwell Says:

    Brown was also fascinated with homosexuality and genderF**K (in prisons and the underworld), which he could display before Code enforcement. QM is the one I haven’t seen, but long to.

    Virtually his only credit after 1933 is THE DEVIL IS A SISSY (36).

  5. GREAT title.

    Yes, there’s a great lesbian-barely-coded character in Blood Money, complete with tux, monocle and long cigarette holder. Is she there to make Judith Anderson look more feminine?
