| A bit rough...but enjoyable.
James Dunn plays a down and out film director. While he's won the Oscar in the past, currently he's unwanted in Hollywood and goes to work for a fly-by-night acting school run by Grant Mitchell. However, when a genuinely talented lady (Alice Faye) enrolls, Dunn is in a bind when his boss wants him to con her out of money. You see, the angle is to pretend to make a movie with her and take her money--but Dunn can't bring himself to do this and plans on REALLY making a movie with Faye. Will his scheme work?

As for the quality of this film, it's pretty obvious that Faye was yet to become an A-list star for Fox Studio. The writing is rather pedestrian, the two idiots provided for comedy relief were (to put it bluntly) just awful and the film very, very uneven. A few of the groan-inducing moments included the Tarzan/Mae West bit as well as anything involving the two idiots. As a result, this film is one mostly of interest to die-hard Alice Faye fans. Not terrible but also not very good.
