I noticed that on both YouTube and IMDb that "Flirtation" is described as a Pre-code film. Well, technically it is not, as the new Production Code came into effect in July of 1934...and this film came out in November, 1934. So, you can rest assured that it is not as sexy or risqué as some of the more infamous Pre-code films.
As for the story, it's a rambling tale of a rube who comes to the big city with his doggy. Both find love. In between, there is a lot of singing and adventures...none of which I found particularly noteworthy one way or the other. In some ways, the dog part of the story reminded me of "Lady and the Tramp". But apart from this, it never really caught my interest.
