Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine The story of how a wicked city racketeer (Robert Montgomery) was converted by country innocence (Maureen O'Sullivan). A great deal brighter and better than it may sound. Aug 1, 2019 Full Review Raquel Stecher Out of the Past a sweet and charming romance. I love the concept of a city gangster out of his element in the country. Jan 2, 2019 Full Review Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Well-made escapist fare. Dec 29, 2017 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Considerably helped by the fine supporting cast, who make this mush somewhat palatable.

Steve D This horrid script was Oscar nominated???? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Tasso D This movie did not teach me how to create a hide out 😭😭😭💀💀💀😡😡😡😡 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/03/23 Full Review susan f Okay, nothing in this 1934 comedy is fresh, but everything is right, especially Robert Montgomery's performance. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Grade B, lightweight movie. Slow moving in parts. I always like Edward Arnold, he has a lot of presence just by being in in the room. And, a very young Mickey Rooney. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member GREAT MOVIE. Excellent: Best of the Best Old Actors; including Mickey Rooney starting in early child actor role. I WANT TO PURCHASE THIS VIDEO? HOW CAN I PURCHASE THIS VIDEO? This Movie "HIDE OUT" needs to be AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE NOW ?? PLEASE MAKE IT AVAILABLE TO BUY SOMEWHERE ?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Lightweigh, though enjoyable story from director W.S. Van Dyke about big city gangster Robert Montgomery hiding out on a small-town farm with a kindly family, including beautiful daughter Maureen O'Sullivan. If you guessed Montgomery falls for O'Sullivan, you've guessed right and comedy and romance ensure. Edward Arnold and Mickey Rooney also appear in the film.
