Maisie and the Boxing Ring
6 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen many of the Maisie films, and this one was another pleasant entry into the series.

When I watched the first Maisie film, I felt like I was watching Jean Harlow. I later learned that the Maisie character was intended for Jean; however I enjoyed Ann Sothern's performance as the sassy character.

Ann does a great job showing that a woman could handle herself in every situation and always land on her feet. She is smart, sexy, and savvy.

I am so grateful to TCM for showing these films, so that I can get the chance to see them for the first time.
