She is given the job of tracking down the killer and policeman Mulligan is assigned to assist her. But after two more unsolved murders, Wright buys "Pilky" a ticket back to Horsetrot, the town in which they found her, and summons a Chicago detective to take over the case.

Gets better as it goes along; great surprise ending
26 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

"She Gets Her Man" goes from merely amusing to quite funny (the sequence where Joan Davis provokes an entire army of innocent bystanders to chase her so that they will fight off some baddies who are also chasing her is a minor classic). The gags are well planned and executed, but the mystery aspect is not ignored either, and after a couple of effective red herrings, we get an ending that's a total surprise. Although William Gargan is second billed, the film really belongs to Joan Davis (who seems to be equally adept at visual and verbal humor) and Leon Errol (very energetic despite his advanced age); they both play underdogs that you want to see triumph at the end....and they do. *** out of 4.
