Storyline

Because of his hot, often-flaring temper, Jimmy Kelly loses another job, much to the disappointment of his mother and the disgust of his fiancée, Margie. Margie is a secretary for lawyer L. Herbert Oakley, who advises Jimmy to study law, but that doesn't last long. His friend, Sammy Cohen gets him a job with him as a process server. He serves a summons on a night club dancer, Carmencita, who says she owes a bill because she had a fight with her sweetheart - one L. Herbert Oakley. The district attorney delegates Jimmy and Sammy to serve subpoenas on a "Trixie Belle," who turns out to be a formidable gangster, plus one on a mysterious "Mr.7". Trixie holds Jimmy a prisoner in an apartment, but gets drunk and reveals that Oakley is Mr. 7, the leader of an oil-swindle operation. Sammy helps Jimmy escape and they learn that Oakley is about to leave for Montreal, and is taking Margiue with him. Jimmy rescues Margie and serves the summons on Oakley. Just before he and Margie are to be married... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

I liked it; quite good for Monogram
25 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No, this isn't a great movie by any means, but it's got its virtues. Eddie Quillan, though he looks to be trying to channel Joe E. Brown a bit too hard, is good in the lead, rambunctious and basically a good guy but able to make the character's faults believable. I've loved Joan Woodbury since I saw her in PRC's "Gangs, Inc." a.k.a. "Paper Bullets" — in which she managed to glue together widely disparate scenes in an ill-constructed role and build a convincing characterization out of them — and while her work here isn't at that level, she's a genuinely warm and touching female lead and I suspect only the rather odd bone structure of her face kept her from major-studio stardom (she certainly had the acting chops for it!). I also liked seeing Mary Gordon have more of a role than her brief appearances as Mrs. Hudson, Sherlock Holmes' landlady, in the Rathbone-Bruce Holmes films gave her. This doesn't have the ineffable tackiness of most Monogram productions of the period — the sets look solid enough that one doesn't fear for the actors' safety and the camera-work, though straightforward, is clear and renders the action visible — and the script, though hardly laugh-out-loud funny, is charming and amusing in a way a lot of Monogram so-called "comedies" of the period weren't. I suspect I'd like the earlier version better but "Here Comes Kelly" is a genuinely charming time-filler and needs no apologies.
