Ace stuntman Richard Talmadge is consistently better than his material in Broadway Gallant. The title bears little relation to the story -- if indeed, it can be called a story. For the most part, Talmadge indulges in his usual eye-popping athletics, hopping over the heads of his enemies, climbing unclimbable walls and buildings, and in general making like Douglas Fairbanks Sr. (for whom Talmadge often doubled). And he wins the girl, who by comparison appears to be sleepwalking throughout the picture. In the tradition of Talmadge's previous vehicles, Broadway Gallant delivers an hour's worth of nonstop action and a halfpenny's worth of plotline.
