Johnny Come Lately-a 5-STAR 1943 Movie!

If we don’t put a Movie on BLAST, future generations will miss out on one ultra fine James Carney performance! And talk about emotions flowing in this one, none will be as great as those this movie will pull out of you. It’s engaging and so intriguing watching two Newspapers go at each other in the Public Arena. So akin, to many things going on today.

But pop some popcorn and grab a drink and sit back and enjoy a funny and dramatic movie you’ll be glad you saw. And if you like Stars in Wizard of Oz and Ma and Pa Kettle. Then you will enjoy seeing three of them in this Movie.

And it’s an Oscar Winner! But do enjoy it…
