Description by OLDIES.com:

Although young and beautiful, schoolteacher Anne Gladden fears a dull future. She finally decides to take a walk on the wild side, splurging on some fashionable new clothes and setting off to find adventure. Her new confidence inspires her to flirt with complete strangers. When a gangster pays unwanted attention to her she ditches him and flees in his car, unaware that there's a corpse in the trunk. Determined to recover his stolen vehicle and its incriminating cargo the thug begins a desperate search. The oblivious Anne, comes to the aid of a handsome young man stranded alongside the road. Romance blooms, but after the shocking discovery of a body in the trunk, the duo decide they have to return the car. The bickering lovebirds head back to the city, trailed by both the angry gangster and the cops, who suspect the young couple of murder.

Heather Angel gained notoriety as the love interest of Bulldog Drummond in the 1930s movie series. Henry Brandon is best remembered as villain Barnaby in Laurel and Hardy's Babes in Toyland. John "Dusty" King was a member of The Range Busters, one of the most popular B Western series of the forties.

A fun flick Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- March, 29, 2010

Here's a nice bit of fluff in the form of a light romantic comedy. Heather Angel and the entire cast make it a pleasure to watch. And, if you really want a surprise, look carefully at the opening credits. You'll see that it's based on a story by Dalton Trumbo. Who would have thought he did comedy?

Wrong Category, Guys! Movie Lover: from Mattoon, IL US -- March, 4, 2010

This is a comedy. There's no mystery to it, & you won't miss the mystery. It would be a typical "boy meets girl" & they're married within 2 hours kind of story if it weren't for Constance Collier, who has never been given credit for her comedy in my opinion. She's a riot in this. Cute story of a plain Jane 'bustin' loose'...& what a mess she lands in! Clem Bevans (? I hope I got that right) also stars in this. Between him & Ms. Collier, you'll get your money's worth of laughs.
