Storyline

Actor Ben Castle is a phony singing cowboy who can not ride, sing, or act, and is afraid of guns and horses and the first one out the door when trouble breaks out. His studio hires attorney Abigail Furnival, to get him out of trouble with a big-time gambler because he can not pay off a gambling debt. And the next thing she knows is that she has married him. The gambler decides to write off the debt when he learns that Abigail is the daughter of an old friend. But the gambler is murdered, and Ben appears to be involved.

Okay Ginger
15 January 2008 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I am writing this only because there are no IMDb user comments at January 2008.

*

I got this and A Shriek In The Night 1933 because they are Ginger Rogers, no other reason.

Shriek has several detailed comments from people who know that era and they tend to rate it as okay entertainment as well as a useful example of the final days of one particular low budget production company. Also, a glimpse of Ginger before her RKO roles with Fred.

The only problem, for me, with Shriek is the sound quality. It gets in the way.

*

Groom as a bit more mature, and also with okay sound and vision. Still only 4x3 black and white, but it is still a carrier for Ginger.

This IMDb page does have a need for some reasonably well informed user comments.
