Friday, February 23, 1934

Walked to school with Pauline. Substitute in Latin still there. Went to show. Saw "Hold Your Man" and "The Pony Express." Sure good.

Hold Your Man poster
Clark Gable two posts in a row!!!

Plot Summary:

Eddie Hall (Clark Gable) and his partner Slim are a pair of nickel-and-dime con men on the hustle.
Nearly caught by the police, Eddie ducks into Ruby Adams's (Jean Harlow) apartment and
convinces her to hide him. Ruby isn't averse to taking advantage of the gullible herself and has
 even tried to manipulate money out of Al, the square shooter from Cincinnati who adores her. Ruby
 and Eddie hit it off, but when Eddie accidentally kills a drunk who was pawing Ruby, he takes off
and she ends up in a women's reformatory, where she discovers she is pregnant. Devastated
 at the thought that Eddie has deserted her, she doesn't realize that Eddie has undergone a great
change--one that will have a powerful impact on her.
