Tracy's Chico Marx accent is rather laughable, but it's a fun movie.  I agree that young Bartholomew is quite good.

I appreciate the effort you put into this, but I don't know if we need that many screenshots, or that much plot summary.

Hurdy gurdy, yeah, that’s an actual thing. When they said it in the film I thought they were just talking nonsense. Turns out that’s really what it’s called.

Don't tell me you've never heard "Hurdy Gurdy Man"!

I've never heard of Hurdy Gurdy Man! :D

*listens*

Needs more hurdy gurdy.



Also, verbALs wrote about this film in his Spencer Tracy marathon. It's a good read.

Are you telling me there was a hurdy gurdy in Zodiac and I didn't see it/hear it?!
