| Surprisingly Good Film
By Appointment Only is a typical early 1930s light drama with a few twists and innuendos. Sally O'Neil plays the young girl Judy who is orphaned after Dr. Travers (Lew Cody)is unable to save her mother. The good doctor, feeling guilty and neglected himself, takes in the orphan as her guardian. His girlfriend tries to be patient, but feels she is losing him to Judy as she matures to a beautiful young woman.

All of the principals are great in their roles, but Sally O'Neil really stands out. The role of Judy seems tailored to her talents allowing her to be both ingénue and vixen.

Just over 60 minutes in length makes me believe some dialogue ended up on the cutting room floor. This is also attributed to moments where the characters seem about to confront each other and then are cut to the next scene. It still remains a good film and worth looking at.
