Kitty O'Day, the telephone operator at the Townley Hotel loved her detective stories, popular at one time in America. She was also a snoop who loved spying on conversations from the guests at the hotel. She could spot danger anywhere, but because of her meddling character, she got into hot water all the time. When she overhears one day the shooting of Mr. Williams, the owner of the Townley, she goes to Johnny Jones, the travel desk colleague, and love interest, into coming with her to investigate. Kitty and Johnny don't stop until they solve the crime and attracting the police attention who think the either one of them is really the assassin.
This Monogram Pictures comedy is mildly amusing. It never hides the fact it is a B picture because of the humble production values. Directed by William Beaudine, it featured Jean Parker, an actress who worked a lot in the Hollywood of the 30s and 40s. She never made it big the movie industry. Peter Cookson, seen as Johnny, also did not have much success with important pictures.
Watch it as a curiosity if it shows on cable.
