Storyline

Betty Jackson, a socialite, and Barry Trent are attracted to each other upon first sight. They met running into each other in the park as they walked their respective dogs day after day. Betty doesn't know what Barry does for a living, but because he has different dogs on each walk, he implies he works in his family's dog breeding business. In reality, he is a poor dog walker, he only doing this job as he, a recent journalism graduate, can't get a job as a reporter, despite he constantly at the offices of the Evening Star newspaper trying to work his way into speak to the editor/publisher, Horace Mansfield, about that job. Although Mansfield tells him that there are no reporter jobs available at the newspaper, Barry is able to convince Mansfield to hire him in another capacity: as the fall guy.

Needs More Pepper
28 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Anne Shirley moved into the leading actress category in 1937 after a decade as a child star. She is good in this screwball comedy about John Morley, who's the blame-taker at the local newspaper -- $25 a week. The ins and outs of who is who is a little too much to list here, but there's a fine supporting cast, including Gene Lockhart, Jack Carson in a very early role, and Barbara Pepper, slightly miscast -- the plot overwhelms this 61-minute programmer, and everyone talks faster than in a Warner B.

Morley is a bit stiff and out of his class in the lead role -- he can't seem to speak fast enough -- but Miss Shirley acquits herself well enough. A few more gags would have helped, but that might have required a few more minutes, and director Ben Holmes, RKO's specialist in churning 'em out quick, probably lacked the patience -- even if it was a slow year for him, he had two other pictures to direct.
