Storyline

Robert will do anything to get the big account that has eluded him. His public relations business makes public angels of rich scoundrels. Jean needs someone to save the paper and she wants Robert. When he finds out that Pat is dating Lorri, John Dillingwell's granddaughter, he gets involved. Robert begins to make John the most hated man and Lorri blames Pat, the publisher. He then goes to John for a job to erase all the bad publicity that he has gotten from the paper. This works until Pat tells John that Robert was behind the smear campaign. But John decides that he does need some good publicity and hires Robert to provide it... Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

It will make you smile
1 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie will appeal to baby boomers and those who like to smile at good acting with a slightly funny plot. For those of us who watch a lot of movies, you will see that this flick has a lot of famous people in the cast. You may not recognize the names, but you will the voices. Actors and actresses of this caliper fully embrace their role. It is a good movie to watch late at night or on a rainy afternoon. Errol Flynn is not in his typical swashbuckling role, but plays the here nonetheless. Both Olivia de Haviland and Rosalind Russell are both leading ladies in this film (unusual). Get your popcorn ready and share around. Smile, and enjoy the movie. It will keep you in a good mood for the day or provide good thoughts to go to sleep to.
