Early In Their Careers
29 January 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

There's a lot of behind-the-camera talent in this short subject, names that would become distinguished later. Darryl F. Zanuck and George Marion Jr. are two of the writers, Pandro S. Berman an assistant director, Lee Garmes one of two cameramen and Malcolm St. Clair the director. That does not affect the quality of the production. A movie should be appraised on its own merits, not on the merit of what its creators would do elsewhere. Still, it does suggest that it is worth a look for anyone interested in seeing good movies. Perhaps the excellence of their later works appear in this short.

Happily, it does. This episode in the "Telephone Girl" series is a good little comedy, even if it's not great. Alberta Vaughn stars as a switchboard operator in a hotel, which is a great set-up for a good regular cast and for introducing people who are passing through. In this case it's a prize fighter, "Hurricane" Sherlock, who takes a shine to her and invites her and her friends form work to visit his home town with him. Eventually there is a prize fight and the whole thing concludes in an amusing fashion. The gags are scattered liberally throughout and if there is nothing particularly original in this short subject, you'll smile throughout. More than good enough.
