Country boy and the big city
9 September 2013 | by silentcomedianSee all my reviews

This is an odd little film from the early thirties. The film starts with a montage of young man and his dog scenes set in the country. For no real reason, he and the dog travel to New York and it's soon the classic country boy in the big city scenario. Boy meets city girl with a shady past, they fall in love and you can guess the rest. Meanwhile the dog gets lost and the love story is inter-spaced with the dogs adventures.

So why would you bother with this film? There is one big reason....Jeanette Loff. Wow! What a forgotten star. She's gorgeous, talented and has quite a presence. Her life was cut short in 1942 with a possible suicide (not proved), she reminded me of an even more attractive (but equally tragic) Thelma Todd.

The only other star of the film is the dog, I think his name was Corky. The male lead was just your average early 30's B picture love interest.

See the film for Jeanette Loff, and then track down her other films.
