A clever and enjoyable comedy
Although he's listed third in the credits, clearly Chester Morris is the lead in this Columbia picture. Barry Cole (Morris) is upset to learn that the writer for his radio program is quitting. Apparently the man's fiancee doesn't want him writing radio shows. While this makes little sense, nor why a man would marry such a woman, I kept watching...and am glad I did. Most of the rest of the film is set aboard a train from New York to Hollywood...there Barry manipulates everyone so he can have the writer from The Green Scorpion back on the show...as well as his securing a sponsor for the show. The film has some cute characters and situations....especially when private detectives board the train looking for a mentally ill man who just might be the program's new sponsor!
Overall, this is a cute comedy...especially near the end of the picture. Well written and enjoyable...and worth seeing.
