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

okay love triangle caper
10 April 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

The awesome Joan Blondell is assistant to popular writer Kenneth Bixby (Warren William). Bixby and Julie (Genevieve Tobin ) had dated way back when... which could be a problem, as Julie is now married to Harvey (vaudeville guy Hugh Herbert). William would probably best be known from the "Lone Wolf" films and the detective Philo Vance films. and the incredible Joan Blondell would go on to do How to Marry a Millionaire and Desk Set. The story is so-so. the picture and sound quality are quite good, for such an oldie. The plot is pretty lighweight and flimsy, but ah well. Herbert is quite understated in this one; in some of his films, he plays the mumbling, absent-minded cluck, and goes over the top. Not so much in this one. It's more of a love-triangle farce. must have been made JUST before the enforcement of the film production code... story of a married woman running after a single man wouldn't be considered proper pretty soon. and a son in addition! Blondell had started right about when the talkies were invented, but she's stuck in a light little caper here. Another Michael Curtiz production, but nothing on the level of Casablanca, which he would make ten years later.
