At-A-Glance Film Reviews: One Hundred Men and a Girl (1937) (286 words)
One Hundred Men and a Girl is one of those movies that's so humorously written, effortlessly executed, and high spirited that it's just plain fun to watch.
A young girl (Deanna Durbin) and her father (Adolph Menjou) are dirt poor, but he's a great musician, and she never stops seeking opportunities to employ her father.
Durbin meets a rich woman, and the woman is fascinated by her -- but she doesn't see the girl as a real person and therefore cannot sympathize with her plight.
