Which Way Did He Go, George?
23 October 2006 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This amusing but overly frantic second feature comedy stars Ross Alexander as a Hollywood press agent who is fired from his job flacking at a movie studio and becomes a radio reporter on Tinseltown, dishing the dirt. Alexander co-stars with future wife Anne Nagel, but the show is stolen by Charley Foy and by Glenda Farrel as a hard-boiled secretary at the radio station.

Ross Alexander is an interesting performer, but his manner in this role is a little too loud when he opens his mouth, half Walter Winchell and half Ted Lewis, although when he lies back on his heels for a reaction shot, he seems made for the movies. Alexander was being cast in Dick Powell's cast-offs at this point and his director here, Clemens, doesn't add much to this one-hour featurette.
