| Ben Lyon Is Terrific
Handsome Ben Lyon has never been more loose and charming than he is here as a riveter with eyes for a rich girl (Ona Munson). The songs by Rodgers and Hart are clever. The plot heats up when Munson invites Lyon and friends to her country house (which looks like a hotel) replete with huge swimming pool. Another funny bit has Munson going to a chop suey joint and clearly not having a clue about the food.

The supporting cast is top notch, with Walter Pigeon, Thelma Todd, Inez Courtney, and Tom Dugan all doing well and especially Nella Walker as the acidic mother (Oh, stop perspiring!). And while the construction scenes are all back shots, Lyon proves a nimble girder walker. He also has a good singing voice.

Lyon should have been a bigger star, but he always seemed to be cast in these B productions.
