Billy Austin served on the crew of the USN airship Macon until it crashed at sea during a storm. In the hospital, the captain has given him a watch with the motto of the crew 'It Shall Be Done' inscribed on it.

He has also met the daughter of the President and intends to marry.Written by

The U.S.S. Macon (ZRS-5) shown in the film was one of two Akron-class rigid airships built by Goodyear. It was commissioned in June 1933. The airship was caught in a storm off Point Sur, California on February 12, 1935. Its rigid internal structure suffered a cascading string of failures that also caused massive helium loss and she settled on the water in Monterey Bay and sank with the loss of only 2 of the 66 crew members.

I'm not quite clear how high pressure selling equates to what Brent was doing in
the navy. Still due to a bit of office politics and some help from the boss's daughter Anita Louise, Brent gets a position with Charles Winninger's lumber
Winninger is most of the show in The Go Getter. His choleric fits of temper and
the almost fiendish delight in the games he plays with his stuffed shirt manager John Eldredge really give The Go Getter the spark it does have. Your
sympathies are pulled toward Brent because he's a hero and Eldredge is such
The Go Getter is a passably amusing comedy. Although you would think people would go out of their way to help someone like Brent, depression of
