Storyline

Angela Tritchell is the daughter of a tooth-paste manufacturer, Rufus K. Twitchell, who has monopolized the business for many years that he has grown conservative, and his rivals have begin to cut into his sales. Angela wants to enter the business but he thinks women have no place in a man's world. A drunken inventor, Elmer Niles, tries to interest Mr. Twitchell into his line of toothpaste with various cocktail flavors, but is shown the door. Angela sees the possibilities in the idea, sells it one of her father's business rival under the stipulation she will go on the road for a year and sell the product. She steals her father's customer in a wholesale fashion right out from under the nose of her father's best salesman, Pat O,Connor, whom she is in love with. But it's whoopee at night and all-business during the day. Claudette Ruggles, a drug-store owner, also has designs on O'Connor. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Snappy Joan Blondell
5 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joan Blondell stars as the daughter of a tooth paste baron (Grant Mitchell) who doesn't believe in women in the workplace or in embracing modern advertising. Blondell is bored and wants a job but daddy says NO! So she goes to a competitor with a new idea from a nutty professor (Hugh Herbert) with the proviso that she gets to be the traveling saleslady.

Blondell immediately runs into competition from daddy's crack salesman (William Gargan) and the two spend the rest of the film sparring and falling in love. Glenda Farrell also stars as the head of a drug store chain, also in love with Gargan.

Lots of fun, fast pacing, and many snappy lines make this a top B comedy of the 30s.Very modern in its view of women, big business, etc.

Ruth Donnelly is the mother, Al Shean is the competitor, Bert Roach (very funny) as the male wallflower, Mary Treen is a secretary, and Johnny Arthur is also a secretary.

Good roles for Blondell, Farrell, and Gargan---and all three underused by Warners.
