"Ms. James....Ms. James!" The blonde beauty on screen raises her eyebrow. "Ms. James, I need you to take a letter." As she walks by another typist's desk she whispers, "I just wish that was all he needs me for." The other secretary turns to follow the striking Ms. James with her eyes. As the door closes, there is a tremendous sigh off screen.
Ms. Gene Marshall plays the charming Ms. Gertie James, a young secretary whose boss is trying desperately to get her attention.
When we asked about her character, she responded "Oh, I love this Ms. James. She learned a long time ago that beauty often gets you nothing but unwanted attention. She's a good hearted gal though, and I'll tell you a secret...Sinclair gets a girl in the end, but it isn't Gertie!" And with that signature Gene Marshall laugh, half delighted, half teasing, she took the next question.
