Tuesday, February 20, 1934

Walked to school with Pauline. Went to show. Saw "No Marriage Ties" and "Sensation Hunters."

No Marriage Ties (RKO, 1933). Midget Window Card
Starring Richard Dix, Elizabeth Allan, Doris Kenyon, Alan Dinehart
Directed by J. Walter Ruben

Plot Summary:

Foster (Dix) is fired when he is found drunk in a bar instead of covering the biggest fight of the year.
After finding that no one in town will hire him, he goes back to the bar and meets a man named "Perk"
Perkins (Dinehart) who owns an ad agency. Tricky phrases are no problem for Foster so the firm grows
 rapidly and becomes Perkins and Foster. When Foster decides to get the Adrienne Deane Cosmetics
 account, he also lasoo's Adrienne (Kenyon) which upsets his steady gal friend Peggy (Allan).
Trouble comes to a head when Perkins decides to leave the agency as he believes that Foster
is an unscrupulous ad man who sells dangerous items for money.
