| Maisie Ravier...dancer, all around great gal AND crime-fighter!
As usual, Maisie is out of work. However, HOW this occurs at the beginning of the film you'll just have to see for yourself! Following this debacle, Maisie is broke and is taken in by a nice guy 'Pappy' Goodring (Allen Jenkings) and allowed to stay as his apartment building. Unfortunately, Maisie is yet another non-paying tenant and Goodring is in jeopardy of losing the place because he can't pay the mortgage. However, when another tenant, Marshall Denningham, moves in, things begin to look up. And, the more successful Denningham is selling his 'Sapphire Water', the better things get between Goodring and the guy who keeps threatening to take the building (Donald Meek). Another huge plot involves an obnoxiously bad comic, 'Hap' Hixby, with stage fright (Red Skelton). Maisie first becomes Hap's stage partner and soon things start to heat up between them off-stage as well. So why's it called "Maisie Gets Her Man"? See the film and find out for yourself.

Like the rest of the films in the series, this one is entertaining and well made. Now I am NOT saying it's deep or will change your life--it is just light entertainment. But it's enjoyable and a worth addition to the series.

By the way, although his role was small, it was sure nice to see Willie Best playing a non-offensive and non-stereotypical sort of role. Fans of old-time movies often would remember him for playing Stepin' Fetchit-type roles in many films--the sort of characters that make most folks uncomfortable today. In fact, his character was pretty smart here!
