The all-purpose title Blind Date was trotted out in 1934 for this romantic trifle. Poor Kitty Taylor (Ann Sothern) just can't choose between wealthy Bob Hartwell (Neil Hamilton) and unwealthy mechanic Bill (Paul Kelly). When Kitty gets a modelling job thanks to Bob, she feels beholden to him, even though she still carries a torch for Bill. Bob announces that he'd like to live with Kitty without bothering to get married, whereupon Kitty goes back to Bill, who by now has decided that she'd be better off with Bob, so he deliberately breaks off with her?..This could go on for years, but the film is only 71 minutes long, obliging Kitty to make her final decision a few moments before the "End" title.
