Storyline

Tom Walker,former All-American fullback who gave up football to enter the ministry, returns to his old home town for his first assignment under the church Bishop , an old friend of his father. And Carol Maynard , a local girl who has become New York's most famous model, comes home to visit her uncle, Homer Purdy, a boarding-house keeper.She is dismayed to learn that the money she has been sending him to pay off his $3000 mortgage has been going to a bunch of non-paying guests, among them Aaror Goss, a radio contest fanatic, and a broken-down actress, Mrs. Brooke. Tom and Carol resume their romance which was interrupted when he went away to college and she to New York. This upsets the Bishop. Mr. Birch, holds the mortgage on Purdy's boarding house and is going to foreclose, and donate the property to Tom's church for a new building. Tom, clearly, has a conflict-of-interest situation on his hands. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Bring back the sarong

The first reviewer has done a fine job of summarizing the film. What remains to be said, however, is that the film is a stinker. The script is particularly awful. It was designed to appeal to small town folks, apparently, and focuses upon homey matters such as the loss of a boarding house by a wicked businessman. Lamour and Montgomery are so wholesome and giggly you want to wretch. Christians are, as usual, cast as bigoted and gossipy. But how about Charles Laughton as a bishop. (What church? Methodist?) Hugh Herbert is completely wasted. The jokes are extremely lame. And 34-year-old Dorothy as a top high fashion model in New York is, well, ridiculous. George Montgomery should have stuck with Westerns, although he does his very best with his lame lines. A company on e-Bay is selling this film right now, which is how I came to see it. Money totally wasted.
