A crippled dancer and a brash ice cream man show they HAVE A HEART when they become the answer to the other's romantic dreams.

This unfortunately obscure little film starts off as a lively comedy, but quickly takes a turn into very serious drama before finally settling into its final shape as a gentle love story -- with a bit of crime action thrown into the mix. The movie will be more than acceptable to those viewers looking for a soap opera with a bit of a punch.

Jean Parker is terrific as the valiant young lady whose life is changed forever as the result of a terrible fall. Love finds her in the unexpected form of James Dunn, very good as the quick tempered but good natured fellow who woos her without knowing of her disability. They make a fine on-screen team, each character filling the void in the other's life.

Pretty Una Merkel, the Southern belle whose prickly presence perked up many a film project in the 1930's, shines as Parker's tart-tongued friend. Laid-back Stuart Erwin is funny as her card-cheating boyfriend. Samuel S. Hinds plays Miss Parker's kindly doctor.

Movie mavens will recognize an uncredited Edward Brophy as Dunn's pal at the ice cream factory.
