Storyline

At an exclusive Manhattan nightclub/speakeasy, N.Y. Mirror gossip columnist Walter Winchell is met by a starry-eyed blonde that says she's also a columnist, back in "Lancaster". Which particular town of that name isn't given but we're told it's decidedly a hick place. So he takes her in and dazzles her with peeks at some famous (or then famous) stars, mutely sitting at other tables. Paul Whiteman and his current version of the Rythm boys do a number. Two gangsters that apparently are good buddies with Winch share a lot of inside rum-running shop talk. At length, the girl reporter is exposed as a lady dip, and he angrily sends her off in a taxi.

And Everyone Knows Yours
6 May 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Walter Winchell appears as himself, haunting the night spots of Broadway, getting the dope on everyone and hob-nobbing with swells and racketeers in this short. He's met Joan Castle, a tyro on the Broadway beat from a hick town, and he gets a kick out of showing off his connections.

Paul Whiteman and his orchestra offer a few songs in this one, and Ruth Etting and a few other current celebrities show their faces. It's the sort of a movie that was meant for Universal Picture's bread-and-butter market, the independent movie theater that changed its program several times a week and whose audiences would appreciate the view of sophistication -- and the cute gag at the end, aimed at the sophisticated swells.
