Warner Bros., 1935
James Cagney, Pat O'Brien, Olivia de Havilland, Frank McHugh, Allen Jenkins
Directed by Lloyd Bacon
The Irish In Us is a light comedy that tells the story of three Irish brothers - fireman Mike (Frank McHugh), policeman Pat (O'Brien), and boxing promoter Danny (Cagney) - who live with their Ma, Mrs. O'Hara (Mary Gordon). Pat wants to marry Lucille Jackson (Olivia deHaviland), the daughter of his boss, Captain Jackson (John Farrell MacDonald). Lucille falls for Danny, though, causing a feud between the two brothers at the Fireman's Ball.
Though his brothers try to convince Danny to settle down with a secure job, Danny believes he can make a fortune when he meets up with boxer Carbarn Hammerschlag (Allen Jenkins), a boxer who starts fighting whenever he hears the sound of a bell. On the night of his big fight against champion boxer Joe Delancey (Harvey Parry), Carbarn gets a toothache and Mike gives him some (alot of!) gin. He ends up getting drunk in the locker room and Danny has to fight Delancey in his place. With the help of his brothers, Danny wins the fight and the girl.

There is a 1 second distortion in the picture at 3:56-3:57 into the movie where the satellite reception became garbled. That is the only problem I saw in the film.
