Storyline

In order to raise money to produce a play (as well as prove that the plot isn't ridiculous), Michael McCreigh makes a bet with his Uncle Carlton that he can begin in Central Park in his underwear and, without paying or borrowing for transportation, get to California in 10 days with a decent suit, $100...and a fiance. If he wins, he gets $15,000 to produce the play; if he loses, he must accept a job in his uncle's packing plant. Written by Arlene K. Witt <arlene@inx.net>

another guy chases girl caper from G. Raymond
22 February 2016 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Ann Sothern must have been busy that week... SHE usually starred in these RKO, mid 1930's films with Gene Raymond. Guy pursues girl, Girl treats guy like crap, Guy and Girl FINALLY iron things out, similar to Fred Astair and Ginger films, but here, no dancing and singing. And at least the awesome, sarcastic Helen Broderick is in it, as always backing up Gene Raymond's underhanded character; she seems to want love to succeed, even when the young female lead is against it. In this one, Wendy Barrie is Paula, who is chased around the country by Michael (Gene Raymond) on some wild, silly caper, because he made a bet with someone. This one is just like all the other lightweight, fun, silly chases Raymond made in the 1930s. With the production code in full force, it had to be kept light and fluffy. Directed by Leigh Jason, who made three of these love stories with Raymond. Its a great 77 minutes of fun! FINALLY available on Warner Brothers Archives website.
