Zasu and Thelma are working their way through college by selling magazine subscriptions. Finding little success going door-to-door, the pair decide to use their charms to sell to men at their places of work.
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.
