Mr. Boggs Steps Out is a delightful popcorn movie. A young man who’s just another cog in the giant corporate office, Stuart Erwin, uses his innate and uncanny ability to keep track of statistics to win a major contest and a substantial sum of money. The world is Erwin’s oyster, and he decides to leave the big city for a small town where he can continue to be a big fish. He makes the seemingly mundane purchase of a barrel factory, but this is where his adventures really begin. Mixing in with wealthy entrepreneurs, and their beautiful and perilous women, Erwin begins to understand how difficult and treacherous the high life can be. Mr. Boggs Steps Out is a well paced and well acted film, thanks in no small part to the drop dead gorgeous Shakespearian actress Helen Chandler.
