As close to perfect as a comedy can get!
9 February 2002 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

What an absolute delight this film is! Horton, Baby Peggy and the 19 year old Clara Bow are all wonderful. It's a gentle comedy about a confirmed bachelor left in charge of his two rather wild little nieces, one of whom is Baby Peggy. They make life hell for him, but also charm the socks off him. And somehow in all the chaos he manages to romance Clara as well. She is utterly beautiful in this film - and so wise for her years. She was definitely one of the truly great film stars - and her presence shines through even in this early role.

This is the first time I have seen a Baby Peggy film, and I'll be looking out for more. She's a terrific little kid - a bit like a tiny version of Clara Bow. And it's fascinating to see a young Edward Everett Horton, looking quite dashing, but still with the pompous mannerisms that became his trademark.

This film will win your heart.
