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

Hugh Herbert Sparks Comedy/Drama
11 February 2004 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An eccentric gentleman helps a pair of young lovers get started in life.

The gentle, whimsical humor of Hugh Herbert highlights THAT MAN'S HERE AGAIN, a little tale of romantic difficulties. Always enjoyable to watch, particularly in a big film with seasoned costars with which to interact, here Herbert is not given quite enough to satisfy his fans. Not until the closing sequence is his zany quirkiness given fuller rein and he turns what has been essentially a drama into light comedy. It's worth the wait.

Tom Brown & Mary Maguire play the elevator operator and maid whose happiness Herbert determines to ensure. Brown portrayed the stalwart juvenile lead in many movies during the 1930's and he always turned in a good performance. Miss Maguire, with her charming Australian accent, is radiant; a real joy to watch. It is a shame major Hollywood stardom eluded her.

The title obviously refers to Herbert, but otherwise is meaningless. Interestingly, the mystery surrounding Miss Maguire's past is never explained--a surprising loose end considering the requirements of the Production Code.
