Going Up         Irene         Nothing But The Truth



Going Up

James Montgomery
Robert Street is a best selling author. He is writing a book about flying - though he has never piloted a plane. He says that writing about it is the same as doing it. His agent thinks that it would be a good publicity stunt for him to go up in a plane. It is arranged for a pilot to come and go up with Robert. The parents of Robert's girlfriend Grace do not approve of him - they prefer French aviator Jules Gaillard. When Jules hears about Robert going up in a plane he challenges him to a race. Robert's pilot arrives but he is too overweight to get in the plane - so Robert has to fly it himself

Irene

James Montgomery
Irene works in her mother's music store. One day she is sent to the estate of tycoon Donald Marshall to tune his piano. She falls in love with him. Donald's friend "Madame Lucy" who is really a man pretending to be a famous French couturier is about to launch her collection - financed by Donald. Irene and two friends are recruited to model the costumes. Donald and Madame Lucy persuade Irene to pose as a society girl and promote the outfits. But she gets angry when Donald suggests she keep up the ruse and goes back to the music shop
