another G Raymond /A Sothern mixup love-story
22 May 2008 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

... and they cut the scenes with Lucille Ball ?? what were they thinking ? Lucy would make "Stage Door" in 1937 also, still a newbie at this point. Newspaper reporters Connie (Ann Sothern) and Jerry (Gene Raymond) are getting married, or have been trying to get hitched for some time now, and Connie's editor (Richard Lane) will stop at nothing to keep her from getting married. Connie follows Jerry out of town on a murder story, and tries to catch him in her web. Attentive viewers will recognize Connie's fellow reporter "Tate" -- It's Frank Jenks, who usually played the thug in crime dramas, and would have supporting roles in four films with G. Raymond. Joan Woodbury plays "Margot", an interloper and dancer who catches Jerry's eye. Will Connie & Jerry ever hook up? Some funny telephone gags. Plot very similar to "His Girl Friday", which was made three years Later... although different writers are credited.
