Storyline

Famed author Kenneth Bixby is on a tour of the US with his assistant Anne Rogers to promote his latest novel, Miriam. Their lives get more complicated while in Cleveland when Ken receives a visit from an old flame, the former Julie Clochessy now married Julie Wilson, the two who have not seen each other in years since their college days. Julie is still infatuated with Ken, especially as she is sure that she is the inspiration for the tragic heroine, Miriam. Julie feels she has to see Ken in light of that and the promise they made to each other in college that they would someday get married, which is more difficult now that she is Mrs. Harvey Wilson. Harvey too is aware of his wife's infatuation as she constantly criticizes him by saying "Kenneth Bixby wouldn't do that", and as such he wants to meet the competition. Also aware of Julie's infatuation are Julie's sister, Elizabeth Clochessy, and Elizabeth's lawyer, Arthur Westlake, who speak to Anne about a scheme to keep Ken totally ... Written by Huggo

Miss Blondell & Mister William Invite You To Join Them In A Bit Of Comic Relief
8 June 2001 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

It's GOODBYE AGAIN as a loyal secretary tries to help her weak-willed, philandering boss out of the romantic complications caused by an old girlfriend, now married.

This was the sort of ephemeral comic frippery which the studios produced almost effortlessly during the 1930's. Well made & highly enjoyable, Depression audiences couldn't seem to get enough of these popular, funny photo dramas.

Joan Blondell & Warren William are perfectly matched as a memorable comedy team. She was the great Hard Times sassy, brassy blonde who always got her man, no matter what travail or comic bumps she encountered along the way. Nearly forgotten now, William is best remembered for the hard-boiled, cynical tycoons & shysters he played to perfection. It is great fun to see him essay light comedy.

Wacky, whimsical Hugh Herbert appears as a blithely unconcerned cuckold. Whether stalking his faithless spouse through trains & hotels or gleefully pushing for a divorce, he is equally hilarious. Behind him comes a rank of character actors - Genevieve Tobin, Wallace Ford, Helen Chandler, Hobart Cavanaugh, Ruth Donnelly - all equally adept at catching the comedy in the story line.

Much of the dialogue & plot is vintage pre-Production Code material.
