New York-based actress Claudia Morgan, best known for her interpretation of Nora Charles in the radio-series version of The Thin Man, was afforded her only film-starring role in Universal's That's My Story. Having been fired from every paper in town, hotshot reporter Fields (William Lundigan) tries to wangle a job from city editor Carter (Ralph Morgan). Fields insists that he will be able to secure a jail-cell interview with notorious gun moll Bonnie Rand, and to that end he has himself arrested and thrown into the cell adjacent to Bonnie's. What he doesn't know is that the girl he's interviewing isn't Bonnie at all, but rival reporter Janet Marlowe (Claudia Morgan), who has likewise arranged her own arrest to wangle an exclusive out of the gun moll. To throw Fields off the track, Janet pretends to be Bonnie -- and the rest of the story hardly has to be elaborated upon, does it? Incidentally, Ralph Morgan and Claudia Morgan were real-life father and daughter, meaning that Claudia was also the niece of Frank "Wizard of Oz" Morgan.
