Thanks For Listening

Pinky Tomlin, the bespectacled crooner responsible for turning "The Object of My Affections" into a hit, is back again in Thanks for Listening. This time, Tomlin plays feckless Homer Tompkins, an easy target for confidence trickster Lulu (Aileen Pringle). Hired as a "professional listener," Homer sets up shop in Reno, inviting people with problems to cry on his shoulder -- for five dollars a session, most of which goes into the pockets of Lulu and her cronies. Homer's biggest challenge is to get the fabulously wealthy Utah Pete to unload his troubles -- and, Lulu hopes, to reveal the whereabouts of his secret gold mine. With the aid of heroine Maxine Doyle, Homer finally figures out that Lulu is up to no good, leading to the hilarious (and of necessity tuneful) finale. Thanks for Listening was the last of Tomlin's starring vehicles for low-budget Ambassador Pictures; it was also the final directorial effort for Marshall Neilan. Hal Erickson, Rovi
