"Randy! Randy! Randy! Where's the rest of me?" ~Ronald Reagan as Drake McHugh, once the local ladies' man who awakens to discover that he's now an amputee.
With Kings Row, Sheridan proved to the studio that she was more than the "Oomph Girl," a nickname given to the vivacious and sexy babe. Besides its nomination for Best Picture, the movie brought James Wong Howe a nomination for Best Cinematography and Sam Wood a nomination for Best Director. Wood's other two nominations in that category came for Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939) and Kitty Foyle (1940).
Kings Row was one of my dad's favorite films. It's become one of mine, too. See it. I think you'll be moved by its look at male-bonding. The stars are Ann Sheridan, Robert Cummings, Ronald Reagan. And Howe.
