Storyline

Loretta Dalrymple, a homely young country girl comes to New York City and gets a job as a chambermaid in a large hotel. She meets Ed Olson, a photographer out of work, and Dan Riley, a promoter with nothing to promote. When an advertiser offers a reward for a photograph of 'America's Prettiest Girl,", Ed makes a composite photo of all the famous movie stars and society belles and calls the girl in his picture "Dawn Glory." A Dawn-Glory craze sweeps the country, and Loretta, with makeup and new clothes, turns out to be the reincarnation of the picture. Loretta has fallen in love with a newspaper picture of "Bingo" Russell, a famous aviator, and when Dan and Ed ask her to pose as Dawn Glory, she readily agrees, hoping she will get to meet Russell. She does meet him and, then, complications arise. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

In the film, the Traveler's Aid sends Loretta to a "pretty good" hotel in New York City, the Park Regis. As the film begins, Click and Ed are staying in a small suite at the Hotel Park Regis for $15 a night. After they win the $2,500 photography prize money, they upgrade to bigger suite at $60 a night. In 2019, that would be equivalent, due to inflation, of upgrading from a $280 a night small suite to a $1,125 larger suite. Actually, in 2019, the cost of a room at the St. Regis Hotel in New York costs $950 a night, a small suite costs $2150 a night, and a larger suite costs $3900 a night. As for the contest prize money, a $2,500 payout in 1935 is equivalent in 2019, due to inflation, to: $47,280. See more »

This was a fun movie
11 May 1999 | by bbalesSee all my reviews

While my first impression of the movie was that it was corny, I soon saw the excessive exaggeration made for a fun movie. The country girl was the ultimate hick, the hero was the absolute best flier in the world, and Barton MacLane was at his evil best.

Enjoyed it.
