Pretty nice movie, a little contrived but overall nice.
Found a DVD online and decided to see what it was about. First off, I'm a John Payne fan and he is looks quite nice even after a cake fight. Now the movie, it moves quickly and has some contrived plot lines but it is similar to many of the movies of that era. My favorite part was when Bill Adams (John Payne) romances Linda Craven (Stella Adler) by singing "I'd Love to Play a Love Scene" while he dances with her around her elegant apartment. You really don't feel any build up toward the romance but you know from the start that these two will be together. Like many movies of that time, two people from opposite stations in life meet, hate then fall in love. The character of Joe Piso (Luis Alberni) was a little annoying, a bit of a stereotype or maybe it was just the actor. Joe is the one that signs up Bill for a contest for money without telling Bill. Problems start for Bill after he wins the contest. The contest is strange, sort of "The Bachelor" of 1937. Everything just moves fast. John Payne also shows he could have done some comedic movies. Nice movie to watch on a rainy day. Wasn't a waste of my time or money
