Monte Brice & Laurence Schwab – Take a Chance (1933)

Take a Chance was based on the hit Broadway musical of the same name, though only one
of the original songs, Eadie Was a Lady, has been retained. The thinnish plot involves the
misadventures of a pair of pickpockets, played on Broadway by Jack Haley and Sid Silvers
and on film by James Dunn and Cliff “Ukelele Ike” Edwards. Tired of fleecing the suckers in
a traveling carnival, our heroes head to Broadway, where they get mixed up with gangsters.
The soubrette role originally played on stage by Ethel Merman is herein essayed by Lillian
Roth, hardly a fair trade. Billed last in the huge cast is Marjorie Main, 15 years before
stepping into her trademark role as Ma Kettle.
