........And there goes the audience, Ho-ho
17 May 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In his brief career Ross Alexander as was the lot of so many B picture actors got the castoffs that the players higher up on the Warner Brothers food chain discarded. Watching Here Comes Carter you can see folks like James Cagney, Pat O'Brien, and Dick Powell doing the role of the fast talking press agent turned gossip columnist who's got a grudge to settle with a ham actor.

Even in the Thirties the audience had seen all this before. When actor Craig Reynolds tells him to kill a story involving wife the public doesn't know he has, Alexander says no and Reynolds gets him canned.

Our resourceful hero is down, but not out. By sheer chutzpah, Alexander gets himself a position as a Walter Winchell like radio commentator and manages to settle a few scores before this less than an hour long film has run its course.

Ross has two girls in pursuit of him, radio singer Anne Nagel and secretary Glenda Farrell. Watch the film if you want to see who he winds up with. Also note that Wayne Morris has a small bit part as a short order cook and future Oscar winner Jane Wyman is in an even briefer part as a nurse.

Poor Ross Alexander died by his own hand shortly after meeting and marrying Anne Nagel. But the studio system already had someone in line for his parts, a young radio announcer named Ronald Reagan was waiting in the wings. Now that was a career that went somewhere.

Alexander's character had an annoying habit of punctuating each tidbit of gossip with a 'ho-ho' to his audience. The critics gave this film the old heave ho.
