Needs More Pepper
28 June 2010 | by (New York City) – 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.
