Pop Quiz: Which actor in this movie is the twenty-third Great Grandson of King Henry II . . . . And for extra credit, which actor in this movie is the twenty-third Great Grandson of Robert de Vere, Earl of Oxford (better known as Robin Hood) . . . . Time’s up . . . . Warren Hull, the square jawed blue eyed leading man.
His parents were Quaker immigrants to America, and with his deep and resonant ‘radio voice’ the tall, dark and handsome man found his first jobs as a singer on radio programs. With his rugged good-looks it wasn’t long until Warner Brothers put him on the big screen as a Hollywood actor. While he never became a super-star, he had a marvelous career in movie after movie until returning to radio as a game show host, and later becoming a television game show host and moderator.
In this madcap comedy he is song lyricist Bob McKay, who is terribly angry because the famous song writer that he created lyrics for stole his girlfriend from him. Suzanne Kaaren is the girlfriend who sings the songs that the two fellows create. As our adventure opens we meet Lucy Carmichael . . . . Oops, it won’t be for another 14 years that we meet the I Love Lucy star in a comedy series, but Patricia Ellis, as song composer Judy Walker, is a perfect pattern for the future funny lady.
When Judy Walker is kicked out of her apartment she sneaks into the empty Fifth Avenue apartment of the famous song composer who is away on vacation. This girl will do whatever is necessary to put her music before a great radio show producer in the hopes of becoming famous.
The wanna-be song writer will scheme and confuse everyone around her into believing that she is working with the famous vacationing composer. All goes well in her deception . . . . The old gal who pays for a radio show loves her and her music . . . . Bob McKay the lyricist loves her music and creates great words to go along with them . . . . The radio producer and everyone else believes that she is a partner to their regular composer who is still on vacation . . . . Nobody knows that she is really just a homeless composer who has never sold a bit of music before.
Finally, as the first radio program is being broadcast, and the future looks bright for the deceptive dilettante, the vacationing composer returns and discovers that she has not only been living in his apartment without his knowledge, but that she has managed to convince everyone that she is working in partnership with him.
The returning composer is so upset that he has called the police and will have the young girl arrested during the first radio program as the whole country is listening in. I’m not sure even Lucy could get out of this mess! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
