Two of the best-looking human beings in Hollywood, Glenn Tryon and Patsy Ruth Miller, headed the cast of Universal's Painting the Town. In his first starring role, Tryon is cast as bucolic inventor Hector Whitmore, who falls for flirtatious city gal Patsy Deveau (Miller). Misinterpreting her fluttering eyelashes as a sign of true and lasting love, Hector follows Patsy to New York, much to the dismay of the girl's wealthy fiance. After a series of setbacks, Hector strikes it rich when his latest invention -- an auto motor that can do 150 miles per hour -- is adopted by the Manhattan fire and police departments (our hero cinches the sale by taking an auto-company representative on a wild and perilous ride through the streets of Gotham). Realizing that there's more to the bumptious Hector than meets the eye, Patsy falls in love with the boy for real.
