Storyline

Jimmy Whalen is the night elevator operator at an upscale apartment hotel. He tries to be as accommodating as he can for the tenants, but will not do anything that may jeopardize his $12/week paycheck. That changes when he allows a young woman, Nancy Lee, who has sneaked into the building to take refuge from the rain, to stay until she dries off, she who states she doesn't have a job having moved to the big city for a better life, and doesn't have a place to stay. Despite Jimmy's strict "one strike, you're out" boss, Johnson, discovering Jimmy harboring Nancy, Jimmy is able to convince Johnson to give Nancy a job instead as a maid in the complex. Jimmy and Nancy quickly fall for each other - Jimmy who knows that he wants to marry her - but Nancy is obviously keeping a secret, one which may end up tearing the two apart. Factoring into what happens between Jimmy and Nancy are two of the building's tenants, belligerent Ned Murdock, who will not tolerate any shenanigans while he's around,... Written by Huggo

Nothing Much to See Except Hugh Herbert
28 April 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In this Warner B movie, Tom Brown is a night-shift elevator operator in a ritzy apartment building, full of obnoxious people and a kindly but ostentatiously rich Hugh Herbert -- he keeps talking about the Ming vase he bought for $10,000 in Hong Kong and the other vase he bought for $6 in New Jersey. They look identical, so there's one certain scene. He rescues waifish Mary Maguire and gets her a job as a maid in the building. There's young love a-budding.

Unfortunately, the young leads endure their hardships in such a humble and kindly manner that it's not a terribly interesting movie. All this is underscored by a score by an uncredited Howard Jackson that is overly intrusive. It's a harmless, unmemorable, high-speed (58 minutes) from a period when there wasn't much of interest going on in this division of the studio.
