Description by OLDIES.com:
Playboy Bob Conrad falls head-over-heels for a beautiful and gifted young pianist, Dorothy McCarthy. The monkey wrench in his romantic plans is Ma McCarthy, who finds Bob's fast-living, drinking and carousing, entirely unacceptable. Determined to win Dorothy's affections, Bob swallows a big dose of humility and takes a job as a lowly store clerk. His efforts seem to be paying off when, at the worst possible time, a sexy siren from Bob's past shows up on the scene.
This romantic tale set in a small town highlights a marvelous cast led by Eric Linden and Cecilia Parker. Directed by W. Duncan Mansfield and written by Karl Brown, Girl Loves Boy is a wonderful, musical love story that rings true with its clever dialog and its down-home setting.
Eric Linden and Cecilia Parker, the stars of Grand National's first release IN HIS STEPS (1936), were reunited in the same studio's GIRL LOVES BOY. Linden plays Bob Conrad, the playboy son of town squire Charles Conrad. Much against his dad's wishes, Bob falls in love with Dorothy (Parker), the daughter of penniless widow Mrs. McCarthy (Dorothy Peterson). At the insistence of Conrad Sr., Bob weds Sally Lacy (Bernadene Hayes), but Dorothy's broken heart is mended when it turns out that Sally's divorce from her previous husband was never finalized. Like the previous IN HIS STEPS, GIRL LOVES BOY was scripted by cinematographer-director Karl Brown.
