Brother Rat, a successful Broadway play about the misadventures of some
cadets at Virginia Military Institute, had a two year run on Broadway
of 577 performances. In bringing it to Hollywood, I only wish the
brothers Warner had gotten George Abbott to come over from Broadway as
well as Eddie Albert from the original cast. I think the film would
have been far the better for it.
As it is it's not a bad comedy at that. Wayne Morris who Warner
Brothers was trying to build up at the time plays the lead, taking over
from Frank Albertson on Broadway. But I did a double take when I saw
that Ronald Reagan had taken over from Jose Ferrer on Broadway, ten
years before Ferrer made his screen debut. Imagine Reagan and Ferrer
playing the same role, I never would have dreamed it.
Reagan isn't bad though as the voice of reason of the three cadets,
having to contend with Morris's schemes and Albert's lovesickness. In
fact they all aren't bad.
On the distaff side Priscilla Lane does well as the object of Morris's
affection and this was the film that introduced Ronald Reagan to the
woman who could have become First Lady, Jane Wyman.
William Tracy also came over from Broadway playing the ever flustered
plebe who is at the beck and call of the three upper classmen. Tracy
took over the part on Broadway from Ezra Stone who went on to play
Henry Aldrich on radio and film. Tracy steals every scene he's in.
Brother Rat is a funny film, but something tells me that the George
Abbott stage production was a whole lot better.
