Movie Info

In this comedy, a toothpaste magnate's mischievous daughter, tired of her father's traditional ways of conducting business, joins forces with her father's rival and a crazy inventor. Together they create "Cocktail Toothpaste." The new concoction tastes like whiskey in the morning, a martini at suppertime, and champagne at night. The stuff is a big success thanks to radio advertising. This teaches her stodgy old dad a good lesson.

Critic Reviews for Traveling Saleslady

All Critics (2)

Hugh Herbert at the top of his usual bent as the goofy inventor of a cocktail toothpaste. Joan Blondell still has that shape. And much slamming of hotel-room doors during a buyer's convention.

Travelling Saleslady won't give you a single thought to take home with you, but it is amusing while it lasts.
