The Whole Town’s Talking

John Ford
USA 1935

In this tumultuous comedy of mistaken identities Edward G. Robinson plays a double role at his best: Mannion, the unprincipled gang boss and Jones, the shy employee. To his misfortune they are completely alike, but thanks to his tough colleague Miss Clark (Jean Arthur) "Jonesy" outgrows himself at the end and Mannion is brought to justice.
