This was silly!
1 December 2005 | by bjonSee all my reviews

Here's a movie that I've been trying to get a hold of for quite some time. It's probably decomposed in its can. I saw it last when I was about 13 years old. I'm now 51. God love those Late Late Shows in the Summer, when I could watch all these old gems. I must confess that I'm writing this as I'm drawing from whatever memory I have of it, so there may be some inaccuracies.

It was a very funny movie, considering there were a few dark overtones; there was a girl who inherited nothing from her father when he died penniless (this is what I remember, anyway). Her sister takes away the man she loves, and the girl is primarily on her own.

What she does is land a job as presumably a clerk at the Krausemeyer Hat Co., where she befriends the owner. Through bit of perseverance and some talent on her own, she comes up with design ideas to add life to a rather staid company by adding some pizazz to the hat designs. Mr. Krausemeyer takes her under his wing, and she goes on to save the day. The marriage, by the way, of her sister and the man she loved takes some unpleasant terms.

Here, the main character turns adversity into a roaring success. Who couldn't get a kick out of it? Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era; I loved the humor in this one.
