Overview

Synopsis

Loose Ankles
A young woman stands to inherit a million bucks in this comedy. The deal is thus: her aunts will give her a cool million if she can stay out of trouble and marry a reputable man with a clean background whom her benefactors approve of. The girl eagerly advertises for her mate, and she finds a handsome fellow with whom she falls in love. The trouble is the man is a gigolo and the aunties most definitely do not approve. Fortunately for him, his buddies intervene and threaten to make public an embarrassing incident involving the ladies and a certain raided cafe. They quickly change their minds and happiness ensues. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Naughty Flirt
The fact that The Naughty Flirt was advertised as having a 78-minute running time but was released at 57 minutes is indication enough that the picture didn't test well with preview audiences. Alice White does her usual as Kay Elliot, a footloose heiress who spends most of her time in night court trying to explain her latest madcap escapade. Kay is in love with white-collar businessman Alan Ward (Paul Page), but he'll have nothing to do with her until she changes her ways. She tries to please him by working as his secretary, but to no avail. In desperation, she agrees to marry fortune-hunting Jack Gregory (Douglas Gilmore), who has been put up to his proposal by his mercenary sister Linda (Myrna Loy, once again far better than her material). Just as Kay is about to take her vows at the altar, she realizes she's still in love with Alan, who has likewise come to his senses. According to some sources, Bela Lugosi played a small role in Naughty Flirt, though he's nowhere to be found in the currently available prints. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
