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.

some big names in the early days... fluffy piece
17 October 2016 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Light, fluffy piece. Story moves right along. typical misunderstandings.... if only everyone had told the truth from the beginning. Anyhoo. Jack Carson in his FIRST credited role! Anne Shirley and John Morley star in this silly film where Morley pretends to be numerous Walter Mitty type roles to help out his newspaper editor boss (Dudley Clement). Every time someone complains, Barry Trent (Morley) pretends to be the one responsible for the goofup, and saves the day. Gene Lockhart is the girlfiend's dad. It all ends well, of course. Fluffy, silly caper. Ain't no thang. Another one of those white-washed, yackity yack films from the 1930s. Directed by Ben Holmes. He was king of the short films. He DID make full lengthers in the 1930s... this being one of them. Kind of a three stooges type ending.
