Rating: 4/5 -- Good version of the play that should have been better.

Nearly all the lines which the script could least afford to spare have been dropped, presumably because of conflict with the delicately casuistical Hays code of morals. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The story behind this riotous film is almost as fascinating as the movie itself. Full Review

It all descends into frantic farce very quickly, but the in-jokes come thick and fast and, by taking potshots at every available target, the film hits enough bullseyes to succeed. Full Review

A likable spoof of Hollywood (1938), with James Cagney and Pat O'Brien as fast-talking screenwriters, and Marie Wilson (the original dumb blond) around for pulchritudinous laughs. Full Review

The picture version of this comedy classic is a little more than adequate but not socko. Full Review

Boy Meets Girl has gone off a little since its Broadway days, but it's still amusing entertainment for people curious to know how Hollywood gets that way. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

In roles based on colorful screenwriters Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, James Cagney and Pat O'Brien fling words around like hot potatoes as they invent boy-meets-girl storylines to please a fading cowboy star (Dick Foran) and a huffy producer (Ralph Bellamy). Their latest idea has a new wrinkle - revenge against the cowboy and the exec.
