Storyline

Gloria Fay and Mae O'Brien, two ex-chorus girls, run a ring toss stand at an amusement park near a Naval port. When sailor "Kewpie" Wiggins comes ashore with the rest of the fleet, he clears the girls out with his preternatural skill for tossing ringers. A frame-up plot by the girls to get Kewpie out of their hair backfires and Gloria is sentenced to thirty days in jail. With Kewpie's help, Gloria is released and given six weeks to come up with her $100 fine, while the girls find themselves owing $60 in back rent and hard-up for cash. Leading businessman J. August Freytag and his Go-Getter Club run a "Miss Pacific Fleet" popularity contest, with votes awarded by vendors for every ten-cent purchase. Kewpie, middleweight champ of the fleet, is set to box for a prize of 5,000 votes for the girl of his choice, and suggests using the votes to help "his girl" Gloria win the contest, which would end the girls' money troubles and allow them to return to New York. Kewpie and the girls get to ... Written by Jimmy L.

These Two Girls Both Win The Prize
25 January 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Joan Blondell must be one of the most appealing actresses in movie history. And Glenda Farrell, though less well known, is also always great company. Allen Jenkins is kind of an unlikely leading man (though he's also a very reliable comic actor.) He shows a very muscular build here, playing a boxer.

Hugh Herbert played variations on the same note in way too many movies for my taste. He's amusing here, though. And Minna Gombell is entertainingly shrewish as his bossy wife.

The plot involves a beauty contest. The girls are roommates and they're hoping Blondell can win and turn around their financial fortune. Though it's pretty G (or maybe PG) stuff, we see lots of beautiful girls who are also contestants.

Anyone who likes the Golddigeer movies, "42nd Street," etc., is likely to find this slight but agreeable.
