Did You Know?


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.

Top-notch B quickie featuring bizarre comic touches
15 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Chester Morris is Larry Burke, fast-talking editor of Flick, the picture magazine "that's always there when it happens." Short on energetic staff photographers, he recruits and hires Pat Marvin, a photographer from way out in Iowa, on the strength of a syndicated newspaper photo that appears to capture a crashing plane right as it hits the ground! Larry is somewhat taken aback, when Pat arrives in his office, to discover that Pat is a female—but decides to give her a shot. Has she got glub?

–Thus begins a wacky tale in which we encounter a jealous boyfriend posing as a brother; an amorous millionaire who casually ditches old wives and selects new ones; the magazine's health nut owner, who comes into the office every morning handing out carrots and leading calisthenics; and a fairly neat little murder mystery thrown in for good measure. --Oh, and Chester explaining that "glub" is an acronym representing four things you've got to have to get ahead in the business—you must be a Go getter, Lucky, Up and at 'em, and a Bunko artist at heart. G,L,U,B. "No woman could possibly have it," he explains to Pat—who naturally (and to Chester's delight) sets about proving him wrong.

Nancy Kelly is Pat, the girl from Iowa looking for a big break. The back-and-forth between her and Morris is excellent—snappy, affectionate, sometimes silly—and their relationship is the center of the picture. Morris is at his frantic best; Kelly is a match for his quickness, while her character's earnestness counters his flipness.

Among other bizarre moments, the picture features more than one shot where a character pauses on the way out of a scene and speaks an aside right to the camera—including the loser boyfriend who hilariously turns to the audience to complain about getting kissed on the cheek again.

Good dialog keeps things moving; a couple of truly surprising plot twists charm and delight as well.

Funniest exchange—magazine owner Richard Gaines explaining to editor Morris how to solve a murder: "First you question the suspects." Morris: "What suspects? Pat's the only one." Owner: "Well, find some!"
