Storyline

Loretta Dalrymple, a homely young country girl comes to New York City and gets a job as a chambermaid in a large hotel. She meets Ed Olson, a photographer out of work, and Dan Riley, a promoter with nothing to promote. When an advertiser offers a reward for a photograph of 'America's Prettiest Girl,", Ed makes a composite photo of all the famous movie stars and society belles and calls the girl in his picture "Dawn Glory." A Dawn-Glory craze sweeps the country, and Loretta, with makeup and new clothes, turns out to be the reincarnation of the picture. Loretta has fallen in love with a newspaper picture of "Bingo" Russell, a famous aviator, and when Dan and Ed ask her to pose as Dawn Glory, she readily agrees, hoping she will get to meet Russell. She does meet him and, then, complications arise. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Too much going on
9 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frenetic story about two fast talkers with a get-rich-quick scheme to turn a plain hotel maid into a beauty contest winner. In addition to the basic Pygmalion story, there is the love angle with the daredevil pilot, the maid's friend, a couple of dialect comedian-CEOs, a nosy newspaperman, two kidnapping plots, bribery, etc.

The problem is that most of these sub-plots are not well integrated into the screenplay and serve mostly as annoying distractions. After all, what is Mary Astor actually supposed to be doing in this film?

Nevertheless, the leads are more than adequate, though it is hard to picture Marion Davies as "The Most Beautiful Girl America"
