Storyline

The adventures of wisecracking telephone repairmen Terry and Johnny are by turns comic, risque, and heroic.

Terry gets Marie a job with financier Schuyler; but Nicky has new plans for her. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Blondell, Farrell and O'Brien
25 December 2019 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Pat Obrien and Allen Jenkins are phone line workers, keeping the phone line working. Eugene Pallette was usually the (huge) sarcastic butler or father figure, overwhelmed by the events of the day. Here, he's the phone company boss, already sick of Terry and Johnny's antics. Joan Blondell and Glenda Farrell were both HUGE, hollywood stars of the 1930s. They are Marie and Bonnie, switchboard operators who meet up with the phone workers, but refuse to go out with them. Terry (Obrien) pretty much stalks Marie, which was probably cute and romantic back in the day, but would be considered harassment these days. so many double entendres and naughty jokes. it's okay. there's a stolen money caper, and Marie gets caught up in it, and must figure out who-dunnit. great work by Blondell, O'brien, and Farrell. Directed by Ray Enright, who had started in silents with the genius Mack Sennett. Story by William Rankin; he had worked on some biggies (harvey girls, only angels have wings) but still no oscars. I've got your Number is pretty good stuff.
