not much to this, but it has the divine Sothern
11 May 2015 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Ann Sothern stars in "She's Got Everything," a 1937 film also starring Gene Raymond (her frequent costar in those days), Helen Broderick, Victor Moore (a "horse broker," not a bookie), Billy Gilbert, and an uncredited but cheery Jack Carson.

Sothern plays Carol Rogers, who thinks she's from a wealthy family. When her father dies, she finds out that all he's left her is debt. In fact, while she sleeps upstairs, his creditors are taking his furniture and anything else they can get their hands on. When she awakens, the only thing left in her room is her bed.

Daddy's biggest creditor Waldo the bookie, has high hopes for Carol marrying a wealthy man from South America who is crazy about her. However, he's a miner, and Carol hates miners.

Carol decides it's time she stood on her own two feet and went out and worked. Waldo has just the job, as secretary to a coffee mogul, Fuller Partridge (Raymond). When she arrives at his office, she finds out part of her job is as a coffee taster. She hates coffee. It makes her sick.

Anything with Ann Sothern is worth seeing. Add the wonderful Helen Broderick as her aunt, and you should have a winner. Unfortunately both actresses are better than their material.

The second part of this film has a lot of music in it, including a nice rendition of "It's Sleepy Time in Hawaii" by Sothern.

Gene Raymond was an attractive man but not right for light comedy.

Ann Sothern looks beautiful and is delightful, but overall the script is as thin as paper.
