Worth a Look
19 February 2013 | by drednmSee all my reviews

This low-budget film runs less than an hour and isn't very good, but it's interesting to see a 1943 film about women taking men's job (the war).

Three women work at "men's jobs" and live together to make ends meet. One day Terry (Patsy Kelly) gets a telegram informing her she's inherited a bungalow and a 10-ton truck. A friend tells the girls they can make a killing hauling stuff cross country and give up their low-paying jobs. So off they go.

Of course their first job involves hauling illegal gambling stuff hidden in furniture. Besides the cops, some thugs are also after them because Kelly is lucky with dice and wins cash.

Not much of a plot, but the pleasure here is watching Patsy Kelly in a starring role. The other "girls" are played by Mary Brian and Isabel Jewell, both well-known actresses near the ends of their careers.

A series of hitchhikers also go along for the ride, including a ditzy fortune teller played by Betty Compson, another major star near the end of her film career. There's also a runaway heiress (Wanda McKay) and an amnesiac (Cobina Wright, Sr.) who doesn't even recognize her husband.

Others in the cast include Warren Hymer, Vince Barnett, Herb Vigran, and Forrest Taylor as a dapper panhandler. Like Compson's and Brian's, his career went back to silent films.
