Storyline

Jimmy Whalen is the night elevator operator at an upscale apartment hotel. He tries to be as accommodating as he can for the tenants, but will not do anything that may jeopardize his $12/week paycheck. That changes when he allows a young woman, Nancy Lee, who has sneaked into the building to take refuge from the rain, to stay until she dries off, she who states she doesn't have a job having moved to the big city for a better life, and doesn't have a place to stay. Despite Jimmy's strict "one strike, you're out" boss, Johnson, discovering Jimmy harboring Nancy, Jimmy is able to convince Johnson to give Nancy a job instead as a maid in the complex. Jimmy and Nancy quickly fall for each other - Jimmy who knows that he wants to marry her - but Nancy is obviously keeping a secret, one which may end up tearing the two apart. Factoring into what happens between Jimmy and Nancy are two of the building's tenants, belligerent Ned Murdock, who will not tolerate any shenanigans while he's around,... Written by Huggo

This film is enjoyable BUT it also makes no sense whatsoever.
28 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you are looking for a logical film, please do NOT watch "That Man's Here Again". And, although it's billed as a comedy, it's also one to skip if you are looking for a laugh-filled picture. Now I am not saying it's a terrible film...but it does have its problems and it's almost like two separate movies tossed together.

Most of the story is about a young man and woman, Jimmy (Tom Brown) and Nancy (Mary McGuire). Jimmy finds Nancy out in the rain...wet, hungry, homeless and without a job. He helps her to get on her feet and it's obvious he's smitten for her. As for her, she is carrying a secret that is very strange for a post-code film...she has a baby. But because she has no money, job or home, the child is living at a home for foundlings. Her intention is to bring him home...but this becomes a problem after Jimmy makes an off-handed comment about how he hates kids! What's next? Well, soon Nancy disappears...and one of the people living in the building where Jimmy and Nancy works comes to the rescue...and from here on it's like a completely different movie. The final portion consists of Thomas Jesse (Hugh Herbert) working hard to help the young couple...even if it means twisting the law...a lot!

If you watch this one, I suggest at the end you just turn off your brain and enjoy. It never makes ANY sense...but it is fun.
