Maisie tries to stop a divorce
29 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "Maisie Goes to Reno," our usually effervescent Maisie is burnt out working in a wartime factory and is sent on a vacation by her doctor. She accepts an offer to sing with her old band in Reno and relax by day but finds that in order to get there, she has to buy the ticket of a woman who's decided not to go. A soldier sees the transaction and begs Maisie to help him. Initially, he wants her ticket but when an MP informs him that his unit has been called in, he asks Maisie to take a note to his soon to be ex-wife in order to stop the divorce.

In Reno, Maisie discovers that the man's wife (Ava Gardner) is being duped by two con artists into believing her husband just wants her money. Maisie herself becomes involved with an employee in the hotel casino (John Hodiak).

Sothern does a fun rendition of "Panhandle Pete," Gardner is ravishing, and John Hodiak was never handsomer. Most of the "Maisie" series was pleasant without being overwhelming, though perhaps some of the earlier films were better. This one is okay, worth it to see Gardner and Hodiak in early roles - and of course, the always wonderful Sothern.
