Goofs

When Ginger was in Bronson's office; the name Courtney was mentioned several times by Bronson, Max, and LeClaire. Ginger then calls her lover "Carter" and the servant picks up the phone and says "Courtney's Residence" however this doesn't raise an ounce of suspicion on Ginger. Later on when they knock on Courtney's door and the butler greets them; his voice still does not raise any suspicions. Since Ginger is an expert processor; it should have raised a red flag.

Minor Joan Blondell film is highly forgettable...
24 August 2011 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

All I can say is any Warner film that has ROSS Alexander and PHIL REGAN in supporting roles is already in trouble. Ross has no sparks as a leading man running away from a process server (Joan Blondell) and Regan's high-pitched tenor is hard on the ears. For comic slant we have HUGH HERBERT in another one of his stereotyped roles to gather whatever laughs there are from a motorboat out of control.

Then we have JOAN BLONDELL and GLENDA FARRELL fast talking their way through an "Okay, toots" kind of script and we have more trouble ahead as the two leading ladies blunder their way through one mistake after another in search of good comedic results. The script is no help, with Blondell getting dumped overboard from a yacht several times in a row.

Mercifully, the programmer is only 66 minutes in length, but seems longer than that. Not recommended to anyone but die hard Joan Blondell fans who apparently think she's great in everything, no matter how ridiculous the plotting is or how slim the material.
