The Reviews for The Hoodlum Saint (1946) 1080p


A major waste of William Powell's considerable talentsReviewed byplanktonrulesVote: 7/10

The only reason I watched this film was for William Powell. He's one of my favorite MGM leading men and he usually is so charming and charismatic that he can make any ordinary film shine,...except, perhaps, this one!!! I should have just trusted the Maltin Guide--after all, it said that apart from Powell it was a bad film. But, being a fan, I unfortunately watched this very convoluted and sappy mess.

The film's biggest problem is that the plot just seems to have 1001 loose ends to the plot. Again and again, the film just looks very incomplete and the pieces seem disjoint and there is no overall vision for the film. We have some assorted "mugs" thrown in for comic relief, Powell's character who is sometimes a nice guy and other times a thoughtless jerk, an ultra-sappy plot about some patron saint of thieves (it is PAINFULLY BAD), Esther Williams who is radiant but her part is flat and one-dimensional, we have the other woman (Angela Lansbury) who sings with a voice that isn't even close to being her real voice (I think Louis Armstrong's wouldn't have been any less convincing) and a plot that is just plain dull and meandering. There is no pay-off for all this--just a dull as dishwater film.

A faux-pious must-to-avoidReviewed byHandlinghandelVote: 1/10

This is a dreadful movie, wavering between comedy and piety, with a wan attempt at romance thrown in.

William Powell was a dashing figure but he needed, and usually had, something. He needed a charming, beautiful costar. Think Myrna. Even the usually sublime Irene Dunne in the icky "Life With Father."

Here he has a young Esther Williams. She is appealing and she clearly is doing her best. But -- how cane one avoid this? She is a fish out of water.

The movie's brushes with the saint in the title are, in my opinion, as someone who is very devout, inappropriate and smarmy as used here.

"Depression is temporary, but principles and faith -- they go on forever."Reviewed byutgard14Vote: 5/10

Peculiar little movie that seems like it would have been a better fit for a pre-WWII Warner Bros. gangster picture. The story's about a WWI soldier (William Powell) coming home to find he's out of work. He and other returning vets have no choice but to rely on charity to get by. Embittered, he decides to get rich no matter what it takes. But the love of a good woman (Esther Williams) will undoubtedly set him back on the path of the straight and narrow. It's a strange one, to be sure. The aging Powell is miscast, the movie is mistimed, and Angela Lansbury's singing is dubbed despite her having a fine singing voice. The supporting cast is good, including Lansbury, Frank McHugh, Rags Ragland, and James Gleason. But the starchiness of the script that doesn't allow either of its charming leads to do what they do best and the lack of romantic chemistry between said leads is the film's undoing. It's watchable enough for fans of Powell and Williams but not something that will make either's career highlight reel.
