better than expected!
23 January 2014 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

It certainly was pre-code, wasn't it? More than the usual amount of girls getting out of the shower, girls standing around in their nighties. Pretty strong story and acting performances though. William Haines and friends work at a radio station, and that figures into the investigation when the un-expected happens. (Don't want to give too much away!) I think having lots of big names in this one helped - Madge Evans, Anita Paige, Neil Hamilton. I always loved Jean Hersholt. Even Hattie McDaniel in here. Ethel Griffies is Mrs. Peters. Country girl and her sisters move to the big city and the adventures they have! Was fun seeing the sound effect machines at the radio station. Reminded me of the Bob Hope films, where he works in radio and gets caught up in capers.

Directed by Harry Beaumont, who had been around Hollywood since day one, just about! He had also directed Joan Crawford in her early stuff. This is a fun watch. Caught it on TCM.
