Wealthy Dick Wallace (John Wayne) has a roving eye that keeps him up partying all hours of the night. His father thinks it's high time for his son to settle down and puts him to work in the family business. What really turns Dick's life upside down is meeting pretty Marion Hall (Evalyn Knapp), a shrewd minister's granddaughter who isn't fooled for a moment by his suave smooth-talking ways.Ultimately it's the playboy who falls prey to Marion's no-nonsense charms and before long they marry. Unfortunately Dick's father, having never met the bride, thinks that his girl-chasing son has been hoodwinked by a gold digger and disowns him. Desperate to repair the rift, Marion wangles her way into her new father-in-law's heart by posing as his doting secretary.Before John Wayne became an American film icon, he played bit parts in many movies throughout the 1920s. Early collaboration with director John Ford led to Wayne's first feature role in Men Without Women (1930), and Ford's Stagecoach (1939) made him a star.Although typically known for westerns, the tall and ruggedly handsome actor is a memorable leading man in romantic comedies, most famously in John Ford's Academy Award winning The Quiet Man (1952). His Private Secretary is an interesting glimpse at Wayne's emerging talent in this genre.Please be advised that while a great effort is made in restoring these films in their entirety, portions which have been destroyed beyond repair may have been edited out.
