I normally like just about everything Nancy Carroll was in...
17 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...but I didn't like this one at all. It's not that it is bad, it is just so mediocre that it is exceedingly dull. I am a fan to the point of obsession of the early talkies and early talkie musicals, and this is not one of the good ones folks. It's also not so bad it's good either. (Think Golden Dawn here.) The plot has possibilities but is lackluster in its execution - an antebellum planter family of the old south is short on cash so the family is getting ready to move out of their mansion for awhile and rent to another family to make some money. The needed extra servants for the rich family do not arrive, so the brother and sister that were getting ready to move out pose as the missing servants to save the lease agreement and thus the plantation. Nancy Carroll and Skeets Gallagher play the sister and brother, Olivia and Charles Dangerfield. The wealthy tenant family consists of snobby matron Mrs. Falkner (Jobyna Howland) and her free-spirit daughter Cora (Lilian Roth). Along for the visit is wealthy Burton Crane (Stanley Smith) whom Mrs. Falkner has picked for the job of future son-in-law. However, her daughter does not share her enthusiasm. With mistaken identities abounding, there is plenty of opportunity for romance that crosses class boundaries, or at least seems to do so.

The music is totally uninspired with one exception - the number "Sing You Sinners". That number alone is worth the price of admission. Zasu Pitts, who is usually quite funny, is just annoying here. The script has her crying hysterically and repeating phrases and just being a little too dim for anything fun to come of it. I fell asleep three times trying to get through this one, and thus I'd not recommend it at all.
