Storyline

Joan Terry, from a Mid-Western smalltown, comes to New York to get a job on the stage. But until she finds an opportunity, she stays at a boarding house where other talent is also waiting. To get a better chance, the people there decide to build a talent pool, where the person with the most chances for a job gets the full support, trying to get jobs for the others there too - and Joan is chosen to do that. But this is not so easy when her fiance is trying to keep her away from the stage... Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

In another time and place?

"Career Girl" had just the right setup to be a good movie, especially during the war years. An all-girl boarding house of would-be starlets in New York had real potential. The plot was just right, and the two love interests were OK. The script was shaky but the movie still had potential. Then came the time for people to perform and it fell flat. Where was the talent in song and dance? Others commented about this, and the lack of much talent did this film in as a musical. Even Frances Langford's numbers were not up to her usual caliber.

This movie may indeed have been for another time. Look closely at the check Frances receives from the hotel clerk in the opening scene. The letter acknowledged the closing of her account by the Midwest National Bank of Kansas City, KS. She received a check for $110 plus, and the date clearly shown on the check is March 10, 1845. That's right – 1845. Someone had fun with that prop, because the camera stays on the letter and check long enough for a theater audience to see the date clearly. Of course, with DVDs today, we can stop right on a scene and savor little goofs like this.
