Bored Rich Girl Chases Adventure
Our adventure opens with scenes of newsreel cameraman Don Phelan and his young assistant, who is the inept son of the boss. They are filming exciting disaster scenes with their state of the art movie cameras, which the cameraman must crank the handle of to advance the film - no motors in cameras in those days that would advance the film at exactly the right speed.
Don works for the Union newsreel company, and his chief rival is the Global newsreel company, run by J. Fenton Howell. Now J. Fenton Howell, owner of the Globe newsreel company, has a beautiful young daughter Wilma, who flies an auto-gyro, a cross between an airplane and a helicopter. The wealthy blonde lady rides horses and does everything else that the idle rich do to amuse themselves. But she wants more. She wants to get a job and accomplish something meaningful.
Ahhh . . . but this is 1935, and wealthy women do not work, they only play. Her dad advises her to just find a good husband and become an idle wealthy wife instead of an idle wealthy daughter. But Wilma has spunk. Wilma wants adventure. Wilma Craves Excitement.
This leads to that and Wilma meets Don and the sparks fly. Don provides the excitement that Wilma is searching for, but she must not let Don know that she is the pampered daughter of the owner of the competition. Of course, that won’t end well. What are the chances that the hot-shot news reporter from one company can find happiness with the wealthy pampered heiress from his biggest competition? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
