I love seeing Monogram movies. They don't have a pristine look. They look down and dirty -- which they were.
It seems as if someone must have said, "Get me Jean Arthur!" and it was misunderstood. Parker plays a flighty girl along the lines of many an Arthur role. She also resembles the sublime Gracie Allen at times.
But Parker was a fine actress in her own right. She shoulders this picture and carries it to great success.
Veda Ann Borg is also on-hand for some cheesecake. But it's Parker's movie all the way.
(The sequel, "The Adventures of Kitty O'Dea," is a retread of the same movie. It's pleasant enough but breaks not ground at all.)
