AMONG THOSE PRESENT at a lavish country house weekend is a penniless young hat check attendant impersonating a British aristocrat.
Harold has some very funny moments in this highly enjoyable film. Whether regaling the snobs with imaginary fox hunting exploits, attempting to ride the killer horse Dynamite, or madly scrambling about the estate in search of his missing pants, Harold is never anything less than hilarious.
Aggie Herring & James Kelly are lots of fun as a grand society dame and her down-to-earth Irish husband. Lovely Mildred Davis plays their daughter, a sweet Girl unimpressed by her parents' wealth.
Robert Israel has composed an excellent film score which perfectly complements Harold's antics on the screen.
