Storyline

Bill is a reporter who works with Jane, his gal before he married Claire. After a year, he is still crazy in love with Claire. But Claire has been stepping out and is now going with Wiley, Bill's boss. Wiley puts Bill on the morgue detail, so that he can go out with Claire, and Bill finds out something about a story Wiley has already turned down. Wiley then sends Bill and Jane into the cult of Brother Nameless to give him more time with Claire. Bill can find that Brother Nameless is a scam artist, but he cannot see what is going on in front of him. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

And Women Must Weep
20 March 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

George Murphy stars in this MGM effort with PLATINUM BLONDE overtones about a reporter trying to follow up on a story about a phony spiritualist while not letting his marriage to Virginia Bruce collapse under the beguiling influence of Sidney Blackmer.

Murphy was working on a string of programmers in which he played a reporter in movies with screwball overtones, but this story, while the screwball elements would be stronger at RKO, tries to deal with the issues in a serious fashion. The result is a decent piece with typical MGM gloss.

Some of the best fun is provided by Cliff Edwards in a straight role, and Toby Wing in a fine little turn as a southern-fried ditz. Miss Wing was best known as one of Busby Berkley's chorine in his enormous kaleidoscopic choreographies, and she rarely got a real role, just plenty of publicity.
