The Lemon Drop Kid (Lanfield, 1951)

My review for the DVD release of The Lemon Drop Kid can be found over at Slant. This  sugary screwball hoot starring Bob Hope as a candy sucking con man who digs himself deeper and deeper in debt with a brutal gangster is great fun, but not in the same league as Sturges or McCarey.
