A Neat Story for Aspiring and Failed Writers
11 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Fun little film mocks the writing profession. The film's title is a puzzle, because the nice-to-look-at Virginia Grey doesn't seem blonde (although she was in real life). Both Shelton and Grey are pretty cute as the leads, and Donald Meek plays a brash alcoholic pulp writer in an unusual role for him. Albert Dekker is good as the fast-talking boss. But don't look for any Berkely touches, this must have been during his sleep-directing period.
