In the ninth entry of this ten-film series, Maisie (Ann Sothern) graduates from business college and disguises herself as a spinsterish frump in order (based on eight past experiences) to keep wolfish prospective employees in line. She gets a job with Joseph Morton (George Murphy) who, with some other returning vets, has perfected an automatically-controlled helicopter. A double-crossing tycoon tries to beat the boys out of their invention, but Maisie discovers the plot and all ends well, but not before Maisie finds herself piloting the helicopter through downtown Los Angeles to a landing in the Pasadena Rose Bowl.

Another enjoyable Maisie movie starring the delightful and lovely Ann Sothern. Maisie has just graduated from business school and wants to get a job as a secretary. However, everywhere she goes the men who interview her are only interested in her looks. So Maisie puts on some glasses, pins her hair up, and tries to dress like a woman with her mind on nothing but business. In the movie this is supposed to make her less appealing. But it's pretty hard to buy as Sothern is so adorable you could put her in a potato sack and she would still be attractive. Anyway, Maisie gets a job with Joe Morton (George Murphy). When Morton learns who she really is and that she used to work assembling airplanes, he invites her into his secret helicopter project. It's always fun to watch Ann Sothern in these Maisie films. They're cute, funny, lightweight entertainment. This isn't my favorite in the series, but it's a good one.
