Everybody should have an Aunt Phoebe.
6 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was envious of Brooke English on "All My Children", and I'm envious of wallflower Lynne Roberts here. Seeing her niece's despondence over her sister's upcoming wedding, Aunt Phoebe Helen Freeman) takes Roberts to New York and passes her off as the author of a racy novel. And just how can Phoebe get away with that? Well, she just happened to write the book herself, and being a lonely aging spinster, she doesn't want her plain Jane niece to end up like her. Roberts and Freeman visit the influential Alan Mowbray, a confirmed bachelor who takes an interest in the younger Roberts, who without her glasses and more fashionable outfits falls for her aunt's publisher Warren Douglas who has never met the author. With wealthy dad Clarence Kolb and arrogant sister Foris Merrick on her trail, Roberts better move fast!

Rather convoluted and unbelievable, this is a light comedy of mistaken identity, and unlike synopsis of it that I located on the web has nothing to do with a detective agency or a murder. It seems longer than its 67 minutes (fortunately intact on the video print I was given) but features a great performance by Freeman and a rather shallow one by Mowbray whose character turns out to be pretty vindictive. Veteran two reeler actress Dorothy Christy has a nice cameo as a flamboyant Hedda Hopper like gossip columnist. Jack Rice is very funny in his few scenes as a gossipy hotel clerk. Then, there's the always amusing Veda Ann Borg as Douglas's straight talking assistant. It's sadly not as good as it could have been, but has a few elements among it I wouldn't mind seeing again.
