Storyline

Jenny has always been fascinated with the stage, especially since her mother was a famous actress. She learns that a theatrical company is putting on the play that included her mother's most famous role. She leaves home to join the company. The trouble is, she doesn't realize that the producers consider the moth-eaten play high camp, while Jenny is taking the whole thing seriously. Written by Daniel Bubbeo <dbubbeo@cmp.com>

This is a good movie
4 September 2005 | by (Des Plaines, United States) – See all my reviews

A Good movie with a good cast. Anne Shirley is one of those forgotten actresses of the 1930's and people should take a second look at what she has done. The Chatterbox is a "B" movie but it still should be put on DVD so new generations can see these wonderful performances.

I do not want to write anything that would spoil someone's interest in wanting to see this movie. I would recommend this movie to movie goers who are not happy these days with what Hollywood is producing. The older movies are classics and be available to a hungry movie fan wanting good entertainment.

So check on the Internet and look up these wonderful movies and if it is not available make a request of either TCM to show it or find out which studio produced it and see if it will becoming out on DVD anytime soon.
