David "Party" Partridge, the general manager née flunky, has three tasks to get accomplished; he has to get Mike Forrester, the syndicates best cartoonist, on the water wagon and back to work; he must persuade Dr. Stryker, an eccentric writer on psychiatry, to sign a new contract' and, most importantly, he must prevent Virginia Radway, whom he loves him himself, from marrying Dimitri Kyeff, no shrinking violet in the eccentric department himself.

An unlikely Lochinvar
27 May 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Any film like Marry The Girl with as many familiar character players in the cast is something not to be passed up. With brother and sister Hugh Herbert and Mary Boland heading the cast you know you have a treat in store.

Carol Hughes is their niece and she's being pursued by fortune hunting Mischa Auer a no account exiled Russian count. So the two of them conspire with shady psychologist Alan Mowbray to get Hughes locked up in his asylum for the rich and snooty.

But Hughes has one unlikely Lochinvar come to her rescue. It's Frank McHugh the editor of the newspaper that the Boland/Herbert family own. McHugh is like the Willie Mossop of the newspaper business and this worm definitely turns with a vengeance.

Looking at Hughes you know her parents were at the deep end of the family gene pool. Fascinating that these two maintain such control. It all works out nicely even for Auer who the family was trying so hard to get rid of.

If you're like me you'll love this diamond in the rough from Warner Brothers B picture unit. No star gazing here, just a lot of good character players doing their thing.
