Crazy Credits

Although the Screenwriters Guild [later Writers Guild of America] was recognized as a union in 1933, few writers ever added SWG after their name as cinematographers [A.S.C.] and film editors [A.C.E.] did. The co-writer of this screenplay, Paul Perez took such a credit. See more »

Donald Cook Showcase
7 December 2018 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Fine little comedy/drama about a poor reporter (Donald Cook) who's being chased by a selfish heiress (Erin O'Brien-Moore). He's sort of in love with a news hen (Ann Doran) but he's too poor to get married.

The heiress finagles the owner of the newspaper to fire Cook so that she can coerce him into marriage. When he thinks Doran might be interested in another man, he gives in. The marriage is a disaster from the start and her snooty friends treat him like a fortune hunter. He bails the marriage.

After the heiress' daddy goes broke and dies, she struggles to make a living, learning how the other half lives and getting her comeuppance.

Cook, Doran, and O'Brien-Moore are all fine in this little, low-budget film from Chesterfield. Also very good are Barbara Bedford as the snarky reporter and John Qualen as the single father.

Hard to find but worth a look.
