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
Two young women running a ring toss in a carnival work on entering a contest so they can get back to New York in Miss Pacific Fleet (1935).
The two women are Joan Blondell and Glenda Farrell, and they need money so they can return to New York and get chorus work. They decide that Gloria (Blondell) will enter to win $2500 and a trip to New York for two. But they have to get the votes.
Amusing comedy. I'm always amazed and how quickly people talked on screen in those days.
This film was made during the Depression, something to take peoples' minds of off their troubles.
Joan Blondell and Glenda Farrell are great as always, and made several films together. Hugh Herbert plays a businessman always trying to get away from his wife. The film also features the usual suspects - Allen Jenkins, Minna Gombell, and Guinn Williams, with good-looking Warren Hull as Gloria's boyfriend.
Cute, light, an artifact of another time.
