In sunny California, madcap party hostess Marion Davies (as Dulcinea "Dulcy" Parker) tries to impress stuffy businessmen for fiancé jeweler Elliott Nugent (as Gordon "Gordy" Smith). Tailor-made for Ms. Davies from dependable material (a hit play and silent film adaptation as "Dulcy"), "Not So Dumb" doesn't live up to the new title. The soundtrack is primitive, with Davies' voice sounding the worst. MGM's production team, director King Vidor, plus a supporting cast led by cute Raymond Hackett (as Bill "Willie" Parker) and comedian Franklin Pangborn (as Vincent Leach) help a little. Davies scatterbrain character is evidenced by her mixing up sayings, like: "The early worm always gets the bird," and "I just knew there was a woodpile in the " Not so funny.
