Neville Brand receives top billing by default in 20th Century-Fox's Man Crazy. The main characters--three larcenous Minnesota girls who travel to Hollywood with stolen funds--are played by newcomers Christine White, Irene Anders and Coleen Miller. The ladies have a high old time while trying to evade both the law and the man (John Brown) they ripped off back home. Paul Wocynski (Brand) is a shifty type who forces Georgia (White) into marriage when he learns the source of her money. As it turns out, he's one of the few likeable characters in the whole affair. John Brown, who plays the robbery victim in Man Crazy, would soon be blacklisted from films because of his alleged communist ties; radio fans will best remember Brown as Digger O'Dell, the "friendly undertaker" on The Life of Riley.
