Great Start and Then...

Marian Nixon is a hardworking secretary/script girl at a movie production company. She and Tom Brown are in love, and he has just developed a new bulb that the studios are interested in. He wants to get married, but Marian is worried that her family of loafers and chiselers need her. They all buy tickets in the Irish Sweepstakes, so Marian buys one of her own. When it draws a horse, Eddie Kane offers $25,000 for it. She turns down the offer and everyone is mad at her. When her horse wins the race, she gives them $25,000, takes the remaining $125,000 and moves into a grand apartment with studio pal Inez Courtney. That's when the real leeches show up.

The movie starts off with a very funny scene at the studio, with Miss Nixon trying to take dictation on script changes from Ralf Harolde, then explaining to Count Ivan Lebdeff and Countess Wera Engels what's going on during a chaotic filming of a scene. The movie, alas, became painful to watch, with Miss Nixon being imposed on by family and strangers, with only Miss Courtney and Mr. Brown offering some sensible and humorous commentary. It remains highly watchable until the end, but after that opening, it was a letdown.
