A rare chance to see Ross Alexander starring in a film.
21 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few films that the very tragic Ross Alexander made before he ultimately killed himself at age 29! He only made 17 films and this is his next to last feature. As another reviewer recommended, read his IMDb biography for more on Alexander.

Kent Carter (Alexander) is out of work and eventually finds a job writing for a radio star. However, one day this star is too drunk to go on the air and with no other choice, they let Carter go on instead. Carter's on the air style is much like Walter Winchell...but even more scandalous and muckraking! Naturally, he irritates a lot of people and soon folks start threatening to sue...but his information is the truth AND the folks at home love him. Soon he's a big star and along with this his ego grows tremendously. Eventually, his ticks off not just movie folks but the mob...as well as his girl who is ashamed of him. At one point, Linda tells him she'd rather 'see him cleaning sewers' instead of doing a radio show like he's been doing! What's going to become of all this?

If a movie could make the star in it bigger, this probably wasn't the one for Alexander. His character is too brash, self-absorbed and unlikable--much like the sorts of guys Lee Tracy excelled at portraying--a guy who actually created a niche for himself playing these sorts of jerks. I am sure this film had little to do with his suicide but it certainly didn't help Alexander in his career. The film is enjoyable but a slight and easy to skip time-passer from Warner Brothers.

By the way, early in the film you'll see Wayne Morris as a fry cook...before he became a star with the studio.
