Although Thelma Todd never developed the chemistry with Patsy Kelly that she had earlier in the series with Zasu Pitts, there are signs of a relationship that looks possible here: Thelma a bit ditzy but willing to stand up to Miss Kelly's unending -- and to me -- annoying brashness.
The story -- about the two of them as reporters trying to get a good story out at the hospital, has plenty of possibilities.
There are also some interesting performers here, including Charlie Hall and, in a rare on screen appearance in the talkies, Billy Bletcher, who started out in silent comedies and wound up as a major voice artist for Disney -- doing Pete -- as well as Warner's -- where he specialized in explosive, growly fathers. The result is not a great comedy short, but it has enough moments to make it amusing.
