Two former Fox contractees star in RKO Radio's She's My Weakness, a flat adaptation of Howard Lindsay and Bertrand Robinson's play Tommy. Hero Tommy Mills (Arthur Lake) would like to marry his sweetie Marie Thurber (Sue Carol), but first he's got to get on his feet financially. Attempting to sell a valuable piece of land at a profit, Tommy is constantly thwarted by his crooked uncle, who has no qualms about profiting from Tommy's loss. The ad campaign for this film was peppered with misleading blurbs like "Youth Whoops It Up in the Rumble Seat": in truth, the film is a stiff, with no one whooping about anything. It was films like She's My Weakness which convinced Sue Carol to give up acting and go into the talent-agent business.
