Storyline

Loretta Dalrymple, a homely young country girl comes to New York City and gets a job as a chambermaid in a large hotel. She meets Ed Olson, a photographer out of work, and Dan Riley, a promoter with nothing to promote. When an advertiser offers a reward for a photograph of 'America's Prettiest Girl,", Ed makes a composite photo of all the famous movie stars and society belles and calls the girl in his picture "Dawn Glory." A Dawn-Glory craze sweeps the country, and Loretta, with makeup and new clothes, turns out to be the reincarnation of the picture. Loretta has fallen in love with a newspaper picture of "Bingo" Russell, a famous aviator, and when Dan and Ed ask her to pose as Dawn Glory, she readily agrees, hoping she will get to meet Russell. She does meet him and, then, complications arise. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

When Click and Edward are in their hotel suite; various characters keep showing up at their door unannounced. However, none of these folks knew the room number. They would have had to ask the hotel desk and in that case, the desk would not have given them the number without first calling the room to get permission. See more »

Quotes

Click Wiley: You yourself said she was glorious. If she can carry you away, you a woman, what do you think she'll do to those judges? Boy, she'll make the headlines.

This was a fun movie
11 May 1999 | by bbalesSee all my reviews

While my first impression of the movie was that it was corny, I soon saw the excessive exaggeration made for a fun movie. The country girl was the ultimate hick, the hero was the absolute best flier in the world, and Barton MacLane was at his evil best.

Enjoyed it.
