Blonde Crazy is a 1931 American Pre-Code romantic comedy-drama film by Roy Del Ruth, starring James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Noel Francis, Louis Calhern, Ray Milland, and Guy Kibbee known for Cagney's line, "That dirty, double-crossin' rat!"

In 2014 Blonde Crazy was released on DVD in a Forbidden Hollywood box set. The cover features a publicity photo of Cagney and Blondell in the "bathtub scene" from the film.


Bert Harris works for a hotel as a bellboy. One day he meets Anne Roberts, who signs up as a chambermaid. He takes a fancy to her and lets her in on his racket, conning people out of money.
