Spendthrift Willie Leyland again returns to the family home in London penniless. His father is none too pleased but Willie smooth-talks him into letting him stay. At the same time he turns the charm on Dorothy Hope, whose father is big in linoleum and who, before Willie's arrival, was about to become engaged to a Russian aristocrat. Written by

An adventurer (Ronald Coleman) who can't do anything right in life gets involved with a woman (Loretta Young) who's about to be married to another man, which sets off various events. This film is pretty routine even for 1930 as we've seen this type of love triangle in various films. Coleman is very good in his role and his fast, energetic performance makes the film fly by. Young is equally good bring her natural charm and cuteness to her role. Myrna Loy, Frederick Kerr and David Torrence also deliver fine performances. The film runs a quick paced 72-minutes and this flies by but the screenplay could have done better for the performers.
