Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Too bad Paul Ford's role wasn't larger. Of course, that goes for Buster Keaton, as well.
Actually, Keaton's role was somewhat larger. There's a restored scene on the new Criterion edition, where Spencer Tracy has a phone conversation with Keaton, hiring the boat to take him to Mexico once he makes off with the $350,000. Unfortunately, the picture element is still nowhere to be found, so it's audio-only . . . but it's there.
A wonderful who's who of comedians at the time.
Be sure to check out Jonathan Winters' gonzo-destruction of a gas station...It has entered cult status...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3DOHvR1-yw
