Forgettable
14 September 2003 | by jemkatSee all my reviews

Irving Pichel in his time directed some very interesting pictures. This 1937 B-effort from Republic is not one of them.

In the plot, such as it is, an unhappily married female reporter is assigned by her boss to beef up the public profile of a naive but honest politician who is running against the crooked incumbent in an upcoming election.

The far from stellar cast are competent in what they do, but you would not exactly call them the most charismatic group of actors ever assembled. The only cast member coming remotely close to being a "name" today would be Dwight Frye of Universal horror picture fame, and his role of a "spy" in the electoral office of our hero Donald Cook is of minimal significance to the picture.

I can't really say that this picture is bad...just of very little consequence, and ultimately, very forgettable.
