Adolphe Menjou, Jack Haley, Jack Oakie, Billie Barnes and Tony Martin star in "Thanks for Everything," a 1938 programmer about a poor sap (Haley) who enters a radio contest about trends and gets a perfect score. As a result, he is manipulated into working for a market research company headed by Menjou. He's dogged night and day by Oakie, who reports his opinions back to Menjou. When the president of a foreign land asks them to find out if Americans would fight if there's another war, Menjou and Haley go to great lengths to find out what Haley would do.
This is a frivolous way to spend an hour and ten minutes, and you can't go wrong listening to Tony Martin's gorgeous voice in four songs. There are some funny moments, and the acting is good. I'm afraid, however, that even at an hour and ten minutes, it seems a bit long.
