| Great Pre-Code Comedy!
Warren William is the very successful romance novelist Kenneth Bixby. He is on a publicity tour for his new book "Miriam" with his assistant / lover (?) Anne Rogers (Joan Blondell).

They're in Cleveland for the usual round of radio interviews, lectures, and book signings when his old college flame shows up at his hotel. Julie Wilson (Genevieve Tobin) is a delusional dingbat married woman who is convinced that Kenneth never got over their brief romance and that she is the inspiration for many of his books. She shows up to renew their affair and isn't aware that Kenneth barely remembers who she is.

Kenneth, being true to his lothario nature, sees an opportunity to add another notch to his bedpost so he arranges to go out with her ... but assures Anne that he will be a perfect Cad with her to discourage any further delusions of romance. While he steps out to escort her downstairs to a taxi Julie's sister and brother-in-law show up at his room. They engage Anne in a plan to keep Kenneth away from Julie, because they know how crazy she is and how likely she is to throw herself at him. After they leave, Julie's husband arrives, but he's not upset or anything, he's just tired of hearing about Kenneth and simply wants to meet him in person.

The rest of the film revolves around this motley crew as they hound Kenneth from Cleveland to the train bound for Albany to his hotel room in Albany ... and there are some really funny moments!

Warren William shows that he's just as adept at playing comedy as he is playing the nefarious type, and Joan Blondell is fabulous as the world-wise wise-cracking assistant.

Recommended!
