Big Business Girl is a rather ho-hum 1930s-era romantic comedy but is at least watchable if only for Loretta Young’s charms and on-screen charisma.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Pretty young coed Claire (LORETTA YOUNG) is in love with university bandleader Johnny Saunders (FRANK ALBERTSON), but graduation sees Johnny bound for Paris and Claire off to an ad agency in Manhattan. Claire is quickly mentored out of the secretarial pool and into a corner copywriter office by her boss, cynical and seductive RJ Clayton (RICARDO CORTEZ). In time, Claire comes to be tempted by RJ’s offers of extra lessons outside the office, just in time for Johnny to surprise her with a sudden return from Paris. Johnny calls it quits with her, and his band rockets to fame, thanks to some secret help from Claire. Seizing his chance to seal the deal with his mentee, RJ steers Johnny towards Pearl (JOHN BLONDELL), a professional home-wrecker. But this home-wrecker may have a heart of gold…

VIDEO – 3.0/5, AUDIO – 3.0/5


Big Business Girl arrives on DVD through Warner’s MOD program, the Archive Collection, presented with a full frame 1.33 aspect ratio and a standard, but hiss-and-pop filled Dolby Digital Mono track.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, Big Business Girl is a rather ho-hum 1930s-era romantic comedy but is at least watchable if only for Loretta Young’s charms and on-screen charisma. The DVD released by Warner’s Archive Collection offers flawed but acceptable video/audio transfers and only a trailer.
