Adolphe Menjou Opens the Stage Door for Andrea Leeds
As her New York apartment building burns, pretty Andrea Leeds (as Katherine "Kay" Martin) retrieves the important "Letter of Introduction" which confirms her parentage. Fellow resident ventriloquist Edgar Bergen (as Edgar Bergen) rescues companion Charlie McCarthy from a future as firewood. Neighborly George Murphy (as Barry Paige) helps Ms. Leeds out of the fire, and reveals he enjoyed peeping at her toil over her frying pan, with a watering mouth. Leeds enjoys kissing Mr. Murphy, but wants to concentrate on her aspiring stage career. Leeds brings her "Letter of Introduction" to Barrymore-like acting Adolphe Menjou (as John Mannering), who is her long-lost father. As his curtain closes, Mr. Menjou helps Leeds to Broadway. Not essential, but fun in its way.
****** Letter of Introduction (8/5/38) John M. Stahl ~ Adolphe Menjou, Andrea Leeds, Edgar Bergen, George Murphy
