The March of Events
Norman Foster is a news reel photographer with a healthy disrespect for Evalyn Knapp, daughter of the owner of a competing news reel. When they meet, she passes herself off with another name, and soon romance is a-blooming in this mild screwball comedy.
It's handsomely eked out with the sort of sequences that the newsreels covered in the era, and the out-of-favor but still strong actors Poverty Row producer Mascot could afford. Director Nick Grinde does a decent job, particularly in the visuals -- his career as a director extended back into the Teens, so the visuals are well handled, producing a good, if not startling movie. One of the plot points shows a fictionalized version of THE MARCH OF TIME film series, herein called "The March of Events". It's B film fare all the way through, but engaging for all that.
