The Town Went Wild is both a rousing romantic comedy and a dark drama. British child superstar (grown up in this film) Freddie Bartholomew (Anna Karenina) stars in this boisterous tale of love trapped between feuding neighbors, in a cross between Romeo and Juliet and the Honeymooners. David Conway (Bartholomew) is in love with Marian Harrison (Minna Gombell), his next door neighbor. The parents do not approve. The story takes a darkly complex turn when it’s revealed that the son’s of each neighbor may have been switched, meaning that the relationship is possibly incestuous. Throughout the arguing and sometimes subversive subject matter, this treat of a film manages to remain fun and entertaining throughout.
