Which Girl will Marry Money, and Which Girl will Marry for Love?

I’m going to share some gossip about our actors, but first the basic plot of this manly romantic comedy. The formula is an old one, well, maybe it was a new one in 1937 . . . Anyway, guy gets girl, guy loses girl to another guy, other guy’s old girlfriend enters the picture and takes the guy who lost his girl, jealousy enters the picture, and then everyone finally gets together with the one they should be with.

Grant Withers is ‘Tons’ Walker, a big, broad-chested man who can make steel as well as any man, but with a smile that will melt the ladies’ hearts. Beatrice Roberts is the boss’ secretary and Grant wants to claim her as his own one day. Skinny, singing Ranny Weeks is Bill Reardon Jr., son of the steel mill owner who should inherit the business when papa suddenly dies, but he doesn’t.

Papa Reardon wrote a strange will, and Tons Walker gets the company and all the wealth . . . Unless wimpy Jr. will work in the mill for a year under an assumed name so that no one knows that he is the son. Junior does indeed start working in the steel mill where no one knows who he is except Tons Walker. Of course, Junior decides to woo the secretary that Tons Walker is in love with and they get engaged. Junior begins working in the steel mill and then begins flirting with the secretary that Tons Walker wants to marry. It looks like Junior will not only work out his year as a laborer and take the company away from Tons Walker, but he will also take his girl, who falls head-over-heels for Junion. Tons Walker has worked hard and helped build the steel mill and now not only will he lose his job, but also his girl . . . . Until Elaine Witworth comes to town.

Now the gossip. Beatrice Roberts is the first of our girlfriends, and this 1924 and 1925 Miss America contestant was married twice. She first married a man that divorced her after seven years and he never married again. She must have had a tremendous impact on him. That man was Robert L. Ripley . . . . Believe it . . . Or Not! (google it, youngsters).

Judith Allen is the second girlfriend in our story, and she had five husbands that we know of. Her first two husbands were heavyweight fighters, but later she tried a skinny brainy fellow that didn’t agree with her, and a couple more men after that, before she gave up and became an ordained minister for the Metaphysics Spiritual Teaching and Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California!

Both beautiful girls had their issues with men in real life, but in this romantic adventure it is the guys that fight over the girls, who are fighting for their man, if the girls can finally decide which man each one really wants. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
