George Magnus, John Bruce and their publicity agent, Peter Mathews, attempt to make a new picture, Beauties on Parade , but halfway through filming, their backer goes bankrupt.[4]



"Hardly living up to the excellence of its title and exploitation possibilities, ‘Redheads on Parade’ is relegated to subsequent-run assignments by its weak and unexciting story. . . Interwoven with this is the love story affecting Boles and Dixie Lee, extremely muddled and placing Mrs. Bing almost solely in the role of a good listener except for a couple of songs. . . Picture doesn’t contain an outstanding performance or moment, though each member of the cast contributes his best."[5]
