Hot Saturday 1932 Cary Grant Nancy Carroll Romance
Stars: Cary Grant, Nancy Carroll, Randolph Scott
In Hot Saturday, bank employee Ruth Brock has a reputation around town for being fast-and-easy but none of the panting suitors has made her yet. She disillusions them one after the other, but the last lad is a bad sport and starts a gossip scandal, among the hens and roosters, about her and a millionaire playboy and Ruth loses her job. Figuring that as long as she has the name, she might as well play the game, she looks him up.
Nancy Carroll shines as an innocent woman nearly destroyed by gossip. Carroll brings sensitivity, depth, and humor to her performance. An inexperienced but effective Cary Grant is a man with charm and without conventional morals. The ending is a surprise.
Hot Saturday is a decent Pre-Coder with some risque subject matter. Love the funny scene where Nancy Carroll wrestles her younger sister and removes her underwear. Carroll is cute and has good chemistry with Grant. Cary’s very charming even this early in his career. Scott’s fine, too. Jane Darwell plays Carroll’s shrewish mother. Nice production and small town atmosphere.
