| mixed feelings about this one...
Would be interesting to know the real timing of this film... released JUST after the crash of the Hindenburg. Was it just a coincidence... that the film talks about the crash of a zeppelin? Acc to imdb, production was occurring December of 1936, which makes it look like it was all in the works prior to the real life disaster, but I guess they could have still added that on to the beginning. That's the opening scene, then the story moves on from there. George Brent is Bill Austin, injured and retired from the Navy, looking for work. Anita Louise is Margaret, daughter of the ornery lumber company president. Austin lands a job, and starts dating Margaret... hijinx ensue. This one goes all around the mulberrry bush; Lots of executive office politics. Tests. Silliness. We admire the lengths he goes to for the girl he loves, but who would put up with all that?? Austin sounds too good to be true. Will it work out, or will it come crashing down? It's all okay. The main attraction here is director Busby Berkeley.. this was one of his films that DIDN'T have the elaborate dance numbers that made him so famous. Plot is a little goofy, but we go on a journey with Austin that may or may not work out in the end.
