Two directors were responsible for this satisfying adaptation of the Charlie Roellinghoff-Hans Jacoby novel There Goes Susie. The title character, played by Wendy Barrie, is the daughter of a wealthy soap manufacturer. Tired of her butterfly existence, she goes out into the world to make her own living, landing a job as a model. When aspiring artist Gene Gerald's rendition of the scantily-clad heroine is sold to the soap tycoon for advertising purposes -- well, it's hardly a surprising denouement, but it is a lot of fun. Bolstering the worldwide appeal of There Goes Susie is the presence of Broadway's Zelma O'Neal and Hollywood's ZaSu Pitts in the supporting cast.
