A Jewel Production. Universal, which did not own its own theater network like many major studios, devised a 3-tier brand system to sell its product: Red Feather (low budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream) and Jewel (prestige pictures produced to command higher roadshow ticket prices). This brand system would fade away in late 1929. See more »
Laura La Plante shines in this delightful comedy of mistaken identity. As the shop-girl Florence, whose remarkable resemblance to silent film star Daphne Dix could result in a handsome windfall to support her boyfriend's career aspirations, La Plante plays both roles with charm, grace, and delightful exasperation at the complications which inevitably ensue. The two characters also appear together in a couple of well-edited split-screen scenes.
The rest of the cast is top-notch and equally memorable in their roles. Einar Hanson as Florence's boyfriend; Zasu Pitts as her roommate; and especially the incomparable Mark Swain and Tully Marshall as the owner of Daphne's movie studio and a muckraking scandalmonger, respectively. They lend outstanding support to this comedy film that keeps its perfectly-paced momentum to the very end.
