365 Movies: Broadway Bill Review

Broadway Bill stars Warner Baxter, Myrna Loy, Clarence Muse, Helen Vinson, and Walter Connolly in this 1934, Frank Capra film. The film is about Dan(Baxter) a man who despises his job at his Father-in-law's(Connolly) company but loves his hobby(racing horses) more than anything. When he feels like he's being trapped, Dan escapes to something that he enjoys. His wife, Margaret(Vinson) doesn't approve of his behavior and believes he'll leave his hobby alone. The only problem is, Dan loves what he does and he wouldn't give it up for anything in the world. Someone who does understand him is, Margaret's unmarried sister, Alice(Loy) who supports him throughout the entire ordeal. This is a sweet and remarkably touching film. I loved the playfulness between Loy and Baxter. They exuded cuteness together! I ended up tearing up at the end of the film, it was so sad but such a marvelous film!
