This Is the Life

Directed by Felix E. Feist
1944    87m    Approved
18-year-old Angela, reared in a New England town by her Aunt Betsy, receives an inheritance which she uses to go to New York, ostensibly for voice training, but she is pursuing the object of her infatuation, Army surgeon Major Hilary Jarret. Her departure depresses her childhood friend Jimmy Plum. Dr. Plum devises an errand that sends his lovesick son to New York, where he discovers that Angela thinks she's Jarret's fiancée. Jimmy also renews acquaintances with a group of show people, including Sally McGuire, who attempts to console him. Jimmy meets Jarret's divorced wife, famed photographer Harriet. Jimmy engineers a meeting of Jarret and Harriet with Angela present, which forms the beginning of an understanding that Jarret is not for her. Jimmy is inducted into the Army.
