20th Century-Fox's Meet the Girls was the vanguard of an intended series about the misadventures of two trouble-prone chorus girls. June Lang and Lynn Bari star as Judy Davis and Terry Wilson, who after losing their jobs in a Honolulu nightclub also manage to misplace their ticket money for the boat trip home. Stowing away on a San Francisco-bound liner, Judy and Terry get mixed up with a comic-opera gigolo (Erik Rhodes), a hypochondriac (Gene Lockhart) and a mysterious jewel thief. As if that weren't enough, our heroines must fend off the friendly advances of well-dressed boozer Mr. Brady (played by perennial movie souse Jack Norton). A minor success, Meet the Girls spawned a sequel, Pardon Our Nerve (1939), but no series materialized.
