This is the first movie I have ever found on IMDb which has neither a plot description nor any reviews. Surprising since this is a rather charming comedy and is lots of fun. Is it a screwball comedy? Maybe not in the classic sense but it has its moments. What you get is many of the best character actors of the 1930s doing what they did best. I watched it to see Ruth Warren who was always a treat. As a bonus, this is one of only five films made by the wonderful Peggy Conklin. I was unfamiliar with her work but am now a fan. She reminds me of Patricia Farr. One item that is hard to get past is Miss Conklin being married to Edward Everett Horton in this outing. She was 30 and looked to be 20 and he was 50 and could pass for 60! Well, it was Hollywood and we have seen this situation before. Watch this if you get the chance, it is worth your time.
