Storyline

Marge is a capable secretary, but her bosses are more interested in her than her abilities. This causes her to be frequently unemployed. To get a job, she changes her look to make herself unattractive. This gets her work with a writer named Freddy, who has a deadline fast approaching for his new book. Unfortunately, Freddy takes every opportunity not to work on the book and even falls for Marge when he sees her as she really looks. But as the unattractive secretary, he barely notices her and she tries everything to get him to complete his book on time. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Marion Davies Romp

Very underrated comedy stars Marion Davies (in her final film) as a woman who frumps herself up to land a secretarial job. Because the frump is efficient, the boss (Robert Montgomery) continues to chase women: a conniving shrew (Marcia Ralston) and a blonde beauty (Davies!) who he meets at a nightclub. Role-reversal comedy is fun from the start with Davies at her comic peak as the dour frump. She's not afraid to look really bad. Excellent supporting cast includes Patsy Kelly, Allen Jenkins, Frank McHugh, Louise Fazenda, and Mary Treen. Once again Davies proves she had acting talent (given the right roles) and that was was a total delight. Her best comedy performances stand up against those of Carole Lombard, Myrna Loy, Jean Arthur or Irene Dunne. Catch this one.
