A bundle of joy becomes a barrel of trouble for two nurses caring for a newborn when each of their boyfriends thinks he's dating a secret single mom! Wisecracking Patsy Kelly teams with a hot, funny blonde for a Hal Roach farce, but this time her co-star isn't Thelma Todd. Todd had died under tragic (and mysterious) circumstances in 1935 at the age of 30. The search for a new foil for Kelly led to the Polish-born Lyda Roberti, whose fractured English and sparkling comedy skills made her a Broadway smash opposite Bob Hope in Roberta. Kelly and Roberti are adorably zany together, but their partnership was sadly short-lived. Roberti suffered a fatal heart attack the year after this film was released. She was only 31.
Three former stalwarts of producer Hal Roach's two-reel comedies, actresses Patsy Kelly and Lyda Roberti and director Gus Meins, combine their talents in the Roach feature film NOBODY'S BABY. Kelly and Roberti play nurses-in-training Kitty and Lena, who reluctantly come into possession of a cute baby. The kid's mother, nightclub dancer Yvonne (Rosina Lawrence), doesn't want her public to know that she's married to her partner Cortez (Don Alvarado), so she prevails upon our heroines to take care of the baby "temporarily." Naturally, the presence of a squawling infant in the apartment of two bachelor girls results in all sorts of gossip and innuendo -- and this being a Hal Roach picture, situation comedy gives way to farce, gives way to slapstick. Sadly, NOBODY'S BABY was among the last of Lyda Roberti's screen appearances: she died the following year of an acute heart condition at the age of 29.
