Storyline

Honey Skinner is proud of her successful husband. When he tells her he's going to ask for a raise, she knows he'll get it. He asks his boss just as their big client announces he's not renewing his contract. He doesn't get the raise, but he's too embarrassed to tell his wife the truth. She starts making plans to spend that extra $10 a week; the first thing is a new dress suit for him and a new outfit for her so they can fit in at a swanky party. They're the hit of the party, and Honey is embraced by the 'smart set.' Meanwhile, business is bad and Skinner loses his job. The tailor is after him for payment on the suit, and Honey is still spending the salary he doesn't have. Written by Anonymous

I'll Take Arthur Lake and Betty Morrissey !
5 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

The stars were competent enough (although director William A. Seiter indulged his somewhat miscast star, Reginald Denny, with far too many close-ups), but the three people I enjoyed most were Arthur Lake (up to his usual Bumstead shenanigans in the office), Betty Morrissey (an office worker with zing), and Lionel Braham (as the pugnacious but wife-tamed Jackson). E.J. Ratcliffe and Ben Hendricks, Jr., also contributed some laughs.

I enjoyed the way the script cleverly turned the tables, and I'm not at all surprised the film was so popular on first release.

In all, a well-staged and nicely produced effort that would benefit by a bit of astute trimming whenever Reg Denny is on-screen.
