Going Places is a 1938 American musical comedy film directed by Ray Enright. Dick Powell plays a sporting goods salesman who is forced to pose as a famous horseman as part of his scheme to boost sales and gets entangled in his lies.

The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song for the song "Jeepers Creepers", premiered in this movie by Louis Armstrong, who sings it to a horse.

Two earlier films, both entitled The Hottentot (1929) and The Hottentot (1922 silent version), were based on the same source.[1]
