Audience Reviews for The Town Went Wild


A slight affair with an older Freddie Bartholomew trying his hand in this screen reworking of Romeo And Juliet, only the real work of the thing is accomplished by Tom Tully and Edward Everett Horton as the battling fathers incensed that their babies only have eyes for each other. There's a piffle of a side story about the boys being switched at birth due the dads blustering, but it's hardly worth mentioning. 5 minutes after this goes off though you'll hardly remember it.
