WBLA is on the air, presenting the live music, the sudsy dramas and the sell-sell-sell of commercial interludes that keep consumers buying and sponsors smiling. But one sponsor, a producer of plumbing supplies, isn't happy. So WBLA scriptwriter Bill Grimes is bounced from his job, setting in motion this movie's turn from comedic to darkly tragic. William Haines, two years removed from
being Tinseltown's top male star, plays Grimes in a melodrama noted for its glimpses of live radio production and for a Depression-era ethos that includes peroxide cuties eager to land a job, a sugar daddy or both. The cast includes Hattie McDaniel in a bit role. Are You Listening? Don't touch that dial.

The movie: William Haines playing a husband who's loving another woman and is a radio producer where is producing "boring" shows and commercial. Through an accident he killed a woman and is running then away. The irony: through the radio reporters and the police is searching after him he became famous through the radio.
Starring: William Haines, Anita Page and in her second movie role: Hattie McDaniel who had LATER her most memorable role as Mammy (House Servant) in "GONE WITH THE WIND" IN 1939 (Was the first African-American to win an Academy Award).
FAZIT: if you want see amazing looking William Haines in a "serious" role, then you're here right.
