Two girls get mixed up with gangsters and newspapermen
3 August 2012 | by padutchland-1See all my reviews

In the first scenes I thought it was going to be just another silly boy meets girl type of vehicle. However, the plot becomes thicker and thicker and develops quite nicely. A newspaper man is sent out to get a story about one of the girls trying to get a job and meets Julie Bishop who he romances. He is more interested in getting the story on a shady character. Rita Hayworth was an up and comer of about 19 when this was released in 1937. She played her part with real maturity and ability. She had natural beauty even then and is seen wearing shorts as part of a girl's softball team. Not a big deal but thought I should mention it. Rita is an innocent girl but is involved with a gangster type pretending that he is a businessman. He is waiting with his cronies to make a lucrative deal which is a phony, then split. The two girls are on the same softball team and end up in danger from the gangsters. That's about all I can say without this being a spoiler. You've got the idea. By the way Guinn "Big Boy" Williams is in this as the police lieutenant. This movie was quite a bit better than I had expected and was well worth watching.
