Fun and fast moving, no boredom here. We were also impressed by the enunciation - no mumbling, no stopping and moving back because we couldn't understand what some word slurring actor said.
The period clothing was amusing and a little distracting at times, with Myrna Loy seemingly reverse channelling Lady Gaga.
As we were unfamiliar with the actors (I was born 14 years after this movie was released), we sometimes got a little confused by the minor actors as to who was whom - I suppose none of them really do look alike, but in black and white and at the quick pace, we did confuse them at times.
One off-putting thing was the treatment of alcoholism as a joke. However, overall this was thoroughly enjoyable. If it were not for the clothing and a very few period references (a nickel for a pay phone), this almost could have been made yesterday,
I'd recommend it.
