    This film is a great example of Forbidden Hollywood. The story is almost dirty. Very funny and great slice of time in the early thirties.

        I've been waiting for this movie for a long time time and it did not disappoint. Gilbert is great as usual. Great period piece. Loved seeing all the rivetting action. Deep and interesting relationships develop between characters. Beautifully captures what can happen between 2 men when a woman comes between them. And Gilbert def works fast!

          Comments about Fast Workers:

          This is really entertaining pre-code. It had a strange mix of comedy and melodrama that worked well and was never boring. All three leads gave terrific performances, especially John Gilbert as the charming wise guy construction worker.

            Comments about Fast Workers:

            This movie is a testament to the fact that silent film great John Gilbert did not have vocal issues, he was just sabotaged by the studio (Check out his profile of on Wikipedia). This movie also exemplifies the talents of Director Tod Browning, who's career was also ruined for making a movie so ahead of it's time ("FREAKS"), that even a supposed "studio tampering" cannot destroy to this day it's ability to shock, horrify and prove that those who are "different" are no better or worse than you. Robert Armstrong's "Lenny"-like performance as Gilbert's slow-witted friend is also quite the departure from all the blustery boisterous characters he played after his success in "KING KONG." An unknown gem that I came across on a late show years ago that took even more yes to track down information, you owe it to yourself to check out "FAST WORKERS," a fine little "A-picture masquerading as a "B"!!!
