The Whole Town's Talking

By W.R Burnett / Robert Riskin

Directed by Carl Balson

A successful businessman finds himself giving advice to the lovelorn to his shy business partner, including the suggestion that he should invent a love interest in order to make himself more appealing to other women. After selecting a random photo to be his “girlfriend,” things start to fall apart. It turns out that the photo is of a famous movie star, and the whole town starts gossiping about the new love interest. To make matters worse, the movie star is scheduled to make a local celebrity appearance and everyone expects our hero to appear with his “intended.” The plot twists and turns, and as in all good comedies, everything is resolved at the end.
