Jefferson Cole comes to New York seeking a job, but is unable to find one. He does find a lost dog that belongs to Fredericka "Freddie" Barrett, daughter of tycoon J. W. Barrett. When he returns the dog, "Freddie" takes a liking to him and persuades her father to give him a job. He is assigned to the Checking Department, discovers that the department is costing the company money and is unneeded. Barrett eliminates the department and Jeff loses his job. But he shows 'Freddie" just how much money the company has been losing on its South American mine, and she forces her father to listen to Jeff. Convinced, Barret makes Jeff head of the mine, and he and 'Freddie" start their honeymoon en route to South America. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Make that 6.5!
11 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a mild little "B"-grade comedy that actually doesn't amount to much, but the players are more than able, Thornton Freeland's direction is surprisingly lively, and production values are actually pretty good for a movie that was designed not to make patrons who came late, feel that they had missed a picture of real importance, or even one that had provided slightly more than average support feature entertainment! Nevertheless, it's nice to see Brenda Joyce essaying a role other than Tarzan's Jane, and performing it rather well. I also enjoyed George Barbier's impression of the boss and Charlie Chan's Mantan Moreland of all people, making his presence felt here as a chef. Also to be commended in the support cast are Ludwig Stossel as the professor, Charles Arnt as Blodgett, and Robert Homans in his customary role as an ordinary uniformed policeman. His upgrade to Chief of Police was just around the corner! It's also Bruce Edwards' first of his two-only shots as a star. Most of his other 52 credits were either posted near the bottom of the cast or not listed at all!
