The Skirt-Chasing Husband and the Singing Niece

'Happy Jimmy Smith' is a man that lives a double life as a mild-mannered husband, and a wanna-be Casanova with every young woman he meets. To get the young ladies' attentions, he promises to help them with money and career advancement. Now they are all coming to him asking for the money and help that he has promised them in the past, but he is on a very frugal allowance from his very wealthy wife.

"Beautiful young niece Nanette does her best to help Uncle Jimmy avoid the ladies and his promises, in very comical ways. You'll notice one of the ladies is Eve Arden a famous actress and television star of the time. She plays a manicurist from Kansas that Jimmy promised to help become an artist, and she turns up in New York at the same hotel that Jimmy and the family are visiting.

Meanwhile, Nanette throws herself at Broadway Producer William Trainor (Victor Mature), and brushes off the attentions of a famous artist that is taken with her (Richard Carlson as Tom Gillespie), but before long the tables are turned and Nanette wants what she doesn't have, Tom the artist. The plot twists between Jimmy, his girls, his wife, and Nanette and her two men, and the funny twists continue right down to the happy ending.

The last ten minutes or so happen on a commercial airliner. Do you remember your last trip on an airplane? The cramped leg room? The stuffed overhead compartment? The debate over who gets to use the arm rest between the narrow seats? You will not believe the progress we have made in the last seventy years. You will not believe air travel in 1940. The last ten minutes alone are an amazing peek at air travel seven decades ago that you will never forget. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
