Dick Wallace is a free-wheeling playboy adverse to working in his workaholic father's office and resisting his advice about the evils of wine, women, and song. He accidentally meets, falls in love with, and elopes with Marion Hall, a respectable, attractive ministers's granddaughter he meets at a gas station but his father assumes she's a gold-digger. When she comes to the senior Wallace's office, he hires her as his secretary and continue to resist young Dick's request that he meet his new wife, a situation that results in some awkward and amusing complications.Written by
Producer Sam Katzman only had $2500 of the film's $9600 budget available. The rest was deferred. Star John Wayne was paid only $150 per week. See more »
When Dick and Marion first meet at the gas station she is by the rear left fender of his car, talking to the attendant on the other side, yet when Dick adjusts the rear view mirror we see Marion's full face instead of a left profile. Then Marion turns her back on the mirror, but when Dick adjusts it downward, we see the front of Marion's feet and legs instead of the back. Only when the camera backs off does Marion turn around and face Dick and the mirror. See more »

This is one of those movies that a person is going to have to make several allowances for in order to enjoy it. First, this movie was very short (60 minutes). Along with that, it seems to be filmed in segments and doesn't flow smoothly from one to the other. Quite choppy. Now, part of the reason for both of these aspects is probably to contain costs. And I fully understand that in lieu of the fact that this movie was produced during the Great Depression. However, these factors really stood out and gave the entire film a rather cheap feeling to it. Fortunately, there are a couple of good things going for this movie too. For one, it has John Wayne ("Richard Wallace") as the leading actor. Granted this is one of his earliest films and he doesn't quite have the screen presence he commanded in his later years. But that's only to be expected. Another good thing was the performance of Evalyn Knapp (as "Marion Hall"). She was really special. Be that as it may, these two ingredients couldn't quite overcome the weaknesses I mentioned earlier. As such, while the movie is definitely cute, I have to give it an average rating.
