Cast & Crew
When Dudley, a young man from the country, comes to the city with his dog "Corky," he falls in love with an actress named Nancy. Dudley loses Corky, but when the dog shows up and causes a disruption while Nancy is singing onstage, she is fired. A short time later, Nancy discovers that her mother, who has been led to believe that Nancy is happily married with a baby, is coming to town. To maintain the deception, Nancy convinces Dudley to pretend to be her husband and "borrows" a baby. The ruse is soon discovered, but by then Nancy and Dudley have fallen in love. Nancy then marries Dudley and they move to his home in the country.
The working title of this film was Mating Time. According to a November 1933 Film Daily news item, Dr. Hugo Riesenfeld composed a suite called "Canine Moods" for the picture. The same news item mentioned that the film was in production at that time, and other Film Daily news items suggest that production was underway in late 1933. Later news items in Film Daily, however, claimed that the film was shot during the spring of 1934 and was being sold to state rights distributors in April and May 1934. The film was approved with eliminations by the New York State Censor Board on June 27, 1934. No further information concerning the production's American release has been located, but, according to information in Monthly Film Bulletin and The Picturegoer, the film was released in Great Britain in 1935. Plot information has been obtained from the British reviews. It is possible that Leo Birinski, who was a writer, also wrote the screenplay for the film. Flirtation May have been the only feature that he directed. The film May also have marked the last time that Cissy FitzGerald, who had been a popular actress known for her distinctive "wink" in the 1910s, appeared onscreen.
