Howard P. Bretherton (1896-1969) started out as a silent movie director and was one of the few of that breed who made it big in the talkies, too. He didnít have an easy time of it, though, and spent close to ten years pushing studio props before his directorial debut in 1926. While London Sleeps got him the attention he needed to further his skills, and Hills of Kentucky, starring celebrity dog Rin Tin Tin, was an instant success. He was mainly associated with Warner Brothers after that and was known for his seemingly inexhaustible fund of Hopalong Cassidy features. Till his retirement from active direction in 1952, he was known as one of Hollywoodís busiest directors. Monogram Productionsí Chasing Trouble (1940), starring the charming Marjorie Reynolds and the ebullient Frankie Darro, is one of his most memorable efforts.A delivery boy for a flower shop, who thinks of himself as an amateur detective, finds out that his boss is mixed up with a foreign espionage ring.
Running Time: 65 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: NR (Suitable for Children)
"This is a lovely vintage movie and was worth the money and short wait for its delivery. I have been consistently satisfied with the timelessly appealing fare from A2ZCDS, and Chasing Trouble was no exception. Frankie Darro stole my heart with his charmingly naÔve character. Why canít they make movies like this nowadays?"
Winifred Domingo (Flint. Michigan)
"We watched Chasing Trouble last night and were completely entertained. Actually, we donít have very complicated standards for movie watching - all I and my family expect is a good time, some laughs and a good story. This charming feature film will never lack an appreciative audience."
Latoya Nolan (Salem, Oregon)
