A real Gem!
1 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of Florence Rice who made 47 films over a 10 year period in the 30's and early 40's and who toiled in virtual anonymity. My goal is to see all 47 movies. To date I have seen 6 and she has been outstanding in all of them. Not all of the scripts have been outstanding but Florence brings a freshness and enthusiasm for all of them. This is no exception. The Girl in 313 is an absolutely wonderful movie with surprises, twists and turns around every corner. She is teamed here with a co-star from her movie Four Girls in White made a year earlier (1939). There is real chemistry between them. Mary Treen and Jack Carson (yes THE Jack Carson)provide some good funny moments. Look for a young James Flavin in a small role. But its Rice and Taylor that keep this movie filled with energy. One wishes that this movie was longer. I usually complain that films today are too long and bog down, but these little "B" movies of the 30's 40's and 50's are sometimes too short. When you come across as good a movie as this is, excellent script, enchanting leads, solid supporting players, you wish it would go on and on. The Girl in 313 is a buried treasure that needs to be excavated. Its hard to find but there is a DVD out there. Definitely worth seeing more than once
