Full movie description "Anything for a Thrill":Don Mallory is the younger brother of ace newsreel photographer Cliff Mallory, and is continually urging Cliff to let him become a cameraman rather than going to college. Cliff refuses. He is assigned to get some newsreel footage of heiress Betty Kelley, who has never been shot. She arrives at the airport accompanied by a phony Earl, to whom she is reportedly engaged, eludes the cameraman by dressing as the pilot and drives off before Cliff discovers the deception. She also destroys the film he shoots of her by sneaking into the Kelley's heavily-guarded estate. Don, with the help of his girl friend, Jean Roberts, fares better and while Jean attracts the attention of the guards, Don sneaks into the estate and makes off with the film, arriving back at the newsreel office in time to pass it off as Cliff's. When the film is released, Betty threatens a libel suit and finally buys the newsreel company as a compromise. She assigns Cliff to cover a baby parade. Meanwhile, the "Earl" finds ...
Reviews of the Anything for a ThrillTaken from a short story by Peter B. Kyne, "To Him Who Dares" (misidentified as "Dared" upon IMDb's page for the film), this is one of at least 110 works written by Kyne that have been rendered into cinema. Kyne, an enormously fecund and popular writer whose output flourished primarily between 1915 and 1940, was so well-received by his reading audience that it was often stated all he needed to do in order to be published was to merely submit a piece for publication. It is, therefore, no surprise that his name is above the title of this somewhat fragmented comedy drama that yet is marked by thoroughly proficient contributions from all those involved in its making. The IMDb synopsis for the film is composed by ever competent Les Adams and neatly outlines the movie in its essentials. As action begins, youthful would-be newsreel photographer Don Mallory (Frankie Darro), along with his girl friend Jean (June Johnson), is watching dramatic examples of footage shot by his older brother Cliff (Kane Richmond), an established news cameraman, and after Jean remarks at how risky such an occupation must be that records dangerous events and history in the making, Don provides the picture's title as response to her: "Yeah....that's the newsreel business. Anything for a thrill." It is clear that Don will need only a slim excuse to follow in his brother's vocational footsteps instead of attending college, Cliff's choice for him. A camera shy socialite, Betty Kelley (Ann Evers), has not been filmed through the medium of news reporting, having evaded all efforts to do so, and the plot line depicts attempts by the Mallory pair to shoot her on film, with Cliff being assigned for that purpose by his employer,a newsreel company. Initially outwitted by Kelley and her protective entourage, Cliff and Don, abetted by doughty Jean, then steal onto the luxurious Kelley family estate with an aim to pictorially record Betty for posterity, in spite of a raft of guards that apparently should be too great an obstacle for the brothers to surmount. About this same time, always curious Don observes a bank robbery in progress, and films the incident, thereby not surprisingly serving to upset the ringleader of the bandits, who also, in true Hollywood melodrama fashion, just happens to be Kelley's fiancé, a hardened con man who has been posing as an English earl (Johnstone White), and the chase is soon on as the Forces of Evil endeavour to seize the incriminating film made during the robbery by the younger Mallory. The role of Don Mallory is prototypical of Darro's characterizations, and it is gratifying to watch him perform in his customary part as gutsy underdog, while a viewer additionally ought not overlook his acrobatic skills as he nimbly performs all of his part's stunts for this film that was very popular upon its original release to theatres. Johnson's playing helps to create giddy comedic episodes for a cleverly crafted screenplay that is efficiently directed by Les Goodwins, a veteran at helming such low-budget productions.
