FUN CONCEPT - SHORT MOVIE - LOVELY MUSIC
Verified purchase
Judy (played by Patricia Ellis) can't pay her rent and has just a few hours to vacate her apartment in quite possibly the most polite eviction I've ever seen. Judy comes up with a plan to stay in the presently vacated apartment of Mr. Hale, a man she was supposed to meet for a business meeting to discuss composing. When she answers his phone, she hears opportunity knocking! That's not the only thing knocking... her new neighbor, Bob McKay, played by the handsome Warren Hull, continually knocks on the walls to quite her and she knocks back! This starts a continuing feud between the two until they eventually discover they are working together. The continually flustered Clyde Lyons (William Newell) adds several points of comedic relief to the movie. The story is smart and sweet plus the music is lovely. At about the 12:00 mark you hear the music (about a minute and a half long) for "Don't Ever Change" (Written by Walter Hirsch and Lou Handman). I really loved this piece and swear I've heard it before, though I've never seen the movie. Later in the movie it is sung by Warren Hull at the 22:30 mark. Another fun song was "Two Hearts Are Dancing" (same authors) sung by Ellis and Hull at the end of the movie.
My only complaint about Judy was her tendency to get dramatically nervous and want to flee, though she never does. Just a little odd.

I would watch it again. I watched it free with Amazon Prime, but as of this writing, I also found it on you-tube in full. It's only 53 minutes (1937 BLACK AND WHITE), so you can certainly pop in your headphones and squeeze it on your lunch hour, and then go back to work a happy camper!

Wacky musical comedy
Verified purchase
No doubt this film gave audiences of its time a chance to see performances of the popular music they enjoyed on the radio, and many viewers will also enjoy it now. Judy Walker’s scheme to use songwriter Phil Hale’s apartment while he’s away is interesting, but then her feud with a second songwriter, Bob McKay, who occupies the adjacent apartment, seems way over the top, serving as a device in a comic plot where everyone despises one another, until they don’t. Nevertheless, I stayed with it, and Patricia Ellis was pretty good as Judy.

I am one of those who likes classic movies. This one has good writing, good acting, great music, slightly typical plot but good nonetheless.

Excellent film quality for 1930's. Fun glamerous adventure.
Verified purchase
What a joy to put yourself in the shoes of girl composer played by Patricia Ellis as she launches herself on a fandangled "don't-get-caught" adventure doing things I would like to do but never would. You just do not know how this one will end until the end, as it should be.

Corny campy and a blast from the past!
Verified purchase
Looking for something lighthearted and fun this is it. It's corny campy and when the camera pans towards her bare legs and move up you begin to wonder what they are going to show. But not to worry everyone in the family can enjoy this.

A delightful and enjoyable film. This most entertaining film will take your mind off everything going on in the world today. Sit back, make a cocktail and have fun.

Cute
Verified purchase
Not sure what the title has to do with the story, but it was actually quite cute. Very 1930s screwball romantic comedy, although not enough emphasis on the romance for my tastes. But a cute, light plot with good music. Enjoyable way to spend an hour!
