Today was a good movie day. First, I got to see Priscilla Lane in Brother Rat and a Baby, which also featured none other than Eddie Albert, a long way removed from Green Acres TV fame, and that well-known former president, Ronald Reagan. It was an entertaining bit of 40s fluff, the Daddy Day Care of its day, I suppose.

Then, unbeknownst to me, they had two Maisie films, Congo Maisie and Gold Rush Maisie, starring Ann Sothern airing back to back directly afterwards! They're formula films, to be sure, but Sothern is excellent and great fun as the lead character, a fast-talking Brooklyn showgal with a heart of gold.
