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

Interesting Curio
3 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

It could be a drama, till the end when Hugh Herbert becomes comical. Then it's hard to figure what was the writer's intention.

Whatever the case, this is a truly "lost and forgotten" film, obviously meant to focus on Herbert's talent. However, it's the romantic leads, Tom Brown and Mary McGuire, that peaked my interest.

Brown, though quite youthful here, was a fully seasoned professional, having been an actor for years. His character rendition always rings true which he projects with total conviction. Now there's a natural talent that can't be "learned." Likewise his romantic interest, McGuire, is most photogenic and appealing, playing her part with dramatic security--another genuine talent.

Herbert plays his comedy down till the end when his trademark zaniness emerges. True, this is a "B-film," and an enjoyable one.
