Good Comedy, Good Cast
29 September 2006 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This a is a sprightly little Republic second feature about how newsreel photographer Wallace Ford mistakes June Travis for a celebrity -- a fine 'meet cute' -- loses his job and goes into a speculative television deal. A good script with a couple of nice plot twists, fast direction and a very good cast, including Arthur Lake and his future 'Blondie' boss, Jonathan Hale, as well as future Oscar-winner Dean Jagger, and ex-silent comics Johnny Arthur and Sid Saylor keep this moving along through to a good closing gag.

Nick Grinde, a director from the teens, and Armand Schaefer, who spent most of his career in B and television westerns, co-direct surprisingly well. Definitely worth a look.
