Re eae 5,364 FEET Se Soe eT 60 MINUTES Kent Carter (Ross Alexander), publicity director of a moving picture studio, refuses to promote his secretary and sweetheart, Linda Warren (Anne Nagel), because he fears she would be a success— which would take her away from him. Rex Marchbanks (Craig Reynolds), the studio’s pet star demands that Kent do something to pacify the movie actor’s wife who has a warrant for his arrest on a charge of desertion. Kent, who hates the actor, calls the police instead, and is fired. Unable to land a better job, Kent becomes a leg man for Mel Winter (Hobart Cavanaugh), radio commentator on Hollywood subjects. When Mel is too drunk to go on the air, Kent substitutes with such sensational success that he replaces Mel permanently. Linda is disgusted with Kent because he plays up scandal in his broadcasts, being especially vindicative toward Rex. But Kent’s new secretary, Verna Kennedy (Glenda Farrell), is for him no matter what he does. Kent uses his influence to make Linda a radio starlet, but hides from her the fact that he got her the job. Kent continues his attacks on Rex, with the result that the star engages gangster Steve Moran (Norman Willis) to intimidate the “lowdowner.” Steve assigns Slugs (John Sheehan) to the job. «(" meer * yy puff ROSS ALEXANDER—Was born in New York City twenty-nine years ago...
