Corn-ball delight but still doing pre-code stuff of interest
Eddie Q never married, I am told, but this movie shows him as a reasonably convincing romantic lead against Maureen O'Sullivan. At one point the director has Mary Nolan ogling Eddie's tight rear-end as he bends over, a scene you won't see in a post-code movie. Eddie also gives Mary a shampoo, which is well done and realistic. This movie also has Maureen in an auto chase, where she out-guns her "bad suitor," and that too is refreshingly pre-code. And the corn-pone is delicious - everyone has a good heart - even the villain is three-dimensional, with his villainy clearly anchored to his keen desire for O'Sullivan. The movie is worth the price of admission just to hear Nolan yell "Yoo-hoo" when summoning boy Eddie (she never calls his character by name), which she does on more than one occasion.
A 75-minute marshmallow with a few pre-code gems inserted.
