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.
