teaser Aggie Appleby, Maker of Men (1933)

A strange blonde in his bed -- that's a promising start for milquetoast Adoniram Schlump (Charles Farrell) when he comes home to discover Aggie (Wynne Gibson) under his sheets. Turns out she's only there because she's got nowhere to go after her brutish boyfriend Red Branahan (William Gargan) went to jail. But something about Schlump makes Aggie think he's promising raw material. Determined to reshape her benefactor in her ex's he-man image, she toughens up Schlump, gets him a job, and restores his masculine confidence -- with unintended consequences for her own love life. A "makeover" comedy before such a word existed (one reviewer used the words "a Bowery Cinderella"), this gently Pre-Code romantic comedy is not only a chance to see former chorus girl Gibson in action, but to enjoy a supporting cast of Zasu Pitts doing her ethereal what-she-does-best as Aggie's best friend, as well as a pre-consumer advocate Betty Furness as Schlump's classy fiance.
