Overview

Synopsis

Gold Rush Maisie
This third installment in MGM's "Maisie" series finds eternally stranded showgirl Maisie Revere (Ann Sothern) stuck in a deserted mining camp. Here she links up with Davises, an impoverished migrant family which hopes to strike gold somewhere in the neighboring hills. Their efforts are resisted by hard-hearted local rancher Bill Anders (Lee Bowman), who orders the family off his property. With Maisie's assistance, the Davises are offered the opportunity to launch a cooperative farming project, with Anders' blessing. Evidently inspired by The Grapes of Wrath, Gold Rush Maisie is hardly in the same league, but it passes the time painlessly. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Maisie Was a Lady
Out of work as usual, showgirl Maisie Revier (Ann Sothern) takes a job as the maid for a wealthy family. She wins over the young man of the household (Lew Ayres), but the rest of the family is too wrapped up in its own problems to benefit from Maisie's good-natured personality. The daughter (Maureen O'Sullivan) tries to kill herself when her engagement breaks up, prompting Maisie to instill a sense of purpose and self-confidence in the shallow lives of her employers. Maisie Was a Lady is enjoyable "B" fare, given substance by the battle of wits between down-to-earth Maisie and imperious family butler C. Aubrey Smith. This film was the fourth in MGM's "Maisie" series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Maisie
Maisie stars Ann Sothern as a worldly showgirl stranded in Wyoming when her show fails. She accepts a job at a carnival shooting gallery, where she meets the handsome foreman (Robert Young) of a lavish ranch -- and is promptly accused of picking the man's pocket. Despite this rocky beginning, Maisie grows fond of the foreman, clearing him of a murder charge (she proves that the victim committed suicide). The wisecracking, street-smart Maisie is on the verge of settling down on the Wyoming ranch at fade-out time. She must have had a change of heart, since Maisie was the first of ten MGM B-pictures featuring Ann Sothern as Maisie Ravier. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Congo Maisie
This is the second episode in the Maisie series, which focused upon the exploits of a feisty, clever, smooth-talking showgirl. The story begins when Maisie has hidden herself aboard a West African steamer after she discovers that she cannot pay her hotel tab. She winds up in a hospital upon a rubber plantation, which she must save from a native attack. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Ringside Maisie
Broke and stranded once more, golden-hearted showgirl Maisie Revere (Ann Sothern) finds herself in upstate New York in general proximity with a prizefighting camp. She meets and ultimately falls in love with up-and-coming boxer Terry Dolan (played by Ann Sothern's future husband Robert Sterling). Upon realizing that her heart belongs to Terry's manager Skeets Maguire (George Murphy), our heroine finds herself on the horns of an emotional dilemma-especially after Dolan is blinded in a fight, possibly permanently. The film's best moments belong to "Slapsie" Maxie Rosenbloom, typecast in his usual role of a pugilist who's suffered one too many blows to the cranium. Also worth the price of admission is Maisie's opening dance-hall scene, highlighted by the terpischorean skills of the star. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
