This was kind of a fun little romantic-comedy-adventure flick featuring good performances all around, especially John Blondell and Glenda Farrell, kind of surprised Hollywood hasn’t poached this and did a remake at this point.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


When Rosie Sturges (JOAN BLONDELL) loses her diamond engagement ring from mobster Dynamite Carson (ROBERT ARMSTRONG) to a slick operator with whom she goes on an illicit date, she does the sensible thing and takes it on the lam. Accompanied by gal pal Marie Callahan (GLENDA FARRELL). Rosie goes undercover as a Girl Scout and heads to New York. When their cover gets blown, they attach themselves to cuckholded millionaire Junior Ashcroft (HUGH HERBERT) and talk their way onto a transatlantic voyage. Things are looking pretty rosy for Rosie and Marie until they meet junior’s new bodyguard – Dynamite Carson!

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


No features were included.

 

VIDEO – 3.0/5, AUDIO – 2.75/5


The film comes to Warner Archive Collection on DVD-R and for the most part, is fine though in line with most other of these older releases where there are plenty of dust marks, scratches and other flaws. The included Dolby Digital Mono track is alright, but also has some minor hisses and pops, albeit nothing overly distracting.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, this was kind of a fun little romantic-comedy-adventure flick featuring good performances all around, especially John Blondell and Glenda Farrell, kind of surprised Hollywood hasn’t poached this and did a remake at this point.
