Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

A nice surprise
6 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Larry (Chester Morris) hires photographer Pat (Nancy Kelly) for his magazine. They fall in love but there is a problem - her boyfriend Ben (Phillip Terry) back home. At first, as an excuse to fend off any advance from Larry, Pat pretends that Ben is her brother and that he is staying with her. The situation is made worse when Ben actually turns up and is forced to go along with the charade for the sake of Pat's job. This makes for a good comedy scene at a nightclub where Ben is given another date, Mavis (Roma Aldrich) to whom he shows absolutely no interest. Larry discovers the deceit just as a murder is committed and Pat is to stand trial for the crime. It's all in Larry's hands.....

This is a quick moving comedy that throws us a mystery towards the end. There are many good scenes and the dialogue is funny. The whole cast perform well in this enjoyable, tongue-in-cheek story and it is worth keeping onto to watch again. One criticism is the quality of the film. It's a story about the publishing business and it's no surprise to learn that photos were being faked to sell newspapers in those days just as they are today (especially on the fashion pages!). In this instance, they are even faked to solve a crime.
