Storyline

Joe Merrill, son of the millionaire owner of a chain of 5 and 10 cent stores, poses as Joe Grant, and takes a job in the stockroom of one of his father's stores, to prove that he can be a success without his father's influence. There he meets stockroom girl Maggie Johnson, and they fall in love. This causes problems, because Mrs. Merrill had planned for her son to marry Millicent Rogers, a high society girl.

"My Best Girl" is a wonderfully sweet, tender love story that never lays the treacle on too thick, and brings in great comedy moments just in the nick of time. Mary is at her best; the cinematography is excellent; the screenplay is funny and endearing--how could you not love this film? Curl up with your sweetheart and watch this one night--it's an absolute gem.
