Foster is fired when he is found drunk in a bar instead of covering the biggest fight of the year. After finding that no one in town will hire him, he goes back to the bar and meets a man named Perkins who owns an ad agency. Tricky phrases are no problem for Foster so the firm grows rapidly and becomes Perkins and Foster. When Foster decides to get the Adrienne Deane Cosmetics account, he also lasoo's Adrienne which upsets his steady gal friend Peggy. Trouble comes to a head when Perkins decides to leave the agency as he believes that Foster is an unscrupulous ad man who sells dangerous items for money. Written by Tony Fontana <>

Bruce Foster: When are you going to marry? Start a family?
Peggy Wilson: Someday.

Taped this film in the late 60's because Richard Dix was a Veteran Actor along with Elizabeth Allan. Dix,(Bruce Foster)had a drinking problem which was portrayed in the 1930's as being funny and cute and enjoyable to view. He was a newspaper man and it seemed Hollywood associated them with always being drunk in order to function. Allan(Peggy Wilson) who appeared in her last film with Boris Karloff "Grip of the Strangler"'58 tries to help Bruce get on his feet and it was refreshing to see that a woman could help a man in trouble without having to see them take their clothes off and jump into bed. There was a beautiful attraction between a man and a woman, which made the story different from the average picture in the 1930's. It is impossible to be critical of this film and its actors, who were super stars in those days. Richard Dix was a leading man in many pictures and made "The Whistler" movie series a tremendous success.
