Joan isn't exactly sure what she wants to do with her newspaper.
When the film begins, the old and beloved owner of a newspaper dies at his desk. The timing sure isn't ideal, as his daughter, Joan (Gloria Stuart), is scheduled to arrive the next day to see him! However, instead of selling the paper like folks assume she's going to do, she plans on working there! But when she meets the managing editor, Hank Gilman (Edmund Lowe), she decides to pretend to be a regular person seeking employment instead of divulging who she really is. Why? Well, I'm not exactly sure! However, he soon realizes who she is and keeps this to himself....again, I am not exactly sure why! Eventually the truth becomes apparent to everyone and Joan is not sure of what she wants. Does she want to let Gilman do his job without interference or does she want to run the paper herself? And, in the process can the pair manage to not drive each other batty?
This is a cute little film--not one that will change your life but makes an excellent time-passer. Lowe, as usual, is smooth and entertaining and Stuart manages to be annoying but NOT stupid-- something that makes the film more workable. Overall, worth your time and fun.
