Just one moment. Things are starting to become very clear to me, particularly since the one thing in New York you can count on is that nothing is what it seems to be.

"My Dear Miss Aldrich" begins with the death of a rich man. He has no will and his closest heir is Martha Aldrich. Suddenly, Aldrich is a very rich and important lady--the new owner of a newspaper! However, Aldrich (Maureen O'Sullivan) isn't content to just own the paper--she wants to be a reporter. But instead of just making herself a reporter, she politely asks the editor of the paper, Ken Morley (Walter Pidgeon, to hire her and treat her like any other employee. At the same time, Aldrich is starting to fall in love with Morley. What's going to happen to the pair as well as Aldrich's aspirations to become a reporter?
This film isn't especially deep and is very slight. But it's quite enjoyable and works a bit better because the wonderful Edna May Oliver is on hand as well. Worth seeing but far from a must-see.
