Movie Summary

Director:
Lloyd Bacon
Released:
1936
Rating:
Not Available
Cynical newshounds cracking wise. Chorus cuties tapping Broadway tunes. A heavyweight battling his way to boxing glory. Boy-meets-girl romance. Snappy patter. Golden Era stars. For fans of classic '30s comedies, any of these elements means great fun. Well fans, Cain and Mabel has 'em all! The story follows prizefighter Larry Cain (Clark Gable) and hoofer Mabel O'Dare (Marion Davies), who fake a romance to drum up a little free publicity. They're both thinking careers, not romance. In fact, it's hate at first sight for the bruiser and the blonde, until a hot smooch over a skillet of sizzling pork chops changes them from sparring partners to just plain partners. But the tabloids aren't through with them yet....
