PLOT SYNOPSIS


High atop a skeletal skyscraper under construction, riveters Bill Dugan (TOM DUGAN) and Hap Harrigan (BEN LYON) cry “Got ya!” while catching red-hot rivets and singing “Nobody Loves a Riveter (But His Mother)” when a sleeping beauty in a neighboring penthouse catches Hap’s eye. Enraptured, Hap misses his “Got ya!” and a rivet crashes through the boudoir window, causing a fire. Racing to the rescue, Hap douses the flames while setting the heiress, Juliette Hunter (ONA MUNSON), aflame with desire. The practical-minded Hap sees no future in their cross-class romance, but Juliette is determined to land Hap as her man. First, however, she needs to break things off with her high-society fiancé, Clay (WALTER PIDGEON). And Clay is determined to prove Hap an upstart lout…

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


No features were included.

 

VIDEO – 3.0/5, AUDIO – 3.0/5


The movie, presented with a full frame aspect ratio, is a fairly scratch-heavy transfer but the blacks and whites are finely balanced and the Dolby Digital Mono track was functional enough with minimal pops and hisses, albeit still present.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, The Hot Heiress is a charming and quite fun romantic-comedy from the early 1930s courtesy of its stars, Ben Lyon and Ona Munson. This DVD-R release via Warner’s Archive Collection has so-so video/audio transfers but, as usual, no bonus features.
