Storyline

Dress designer Joan Wood, who's heavily in debt, has created costumes for a Broadway show that is exported to Argentina. With the money she wants to pay her debts, but there was a mistake: she is receiving the money in Buenos Aires, not in New York. Her friend Wally Wendell, whose grandfather does not approve of his relationship with her, wants him to marry a girl he hasn't seen for some years named Constance Cook, whose grandfather is the owner of a ship traveling to Buenos Aires and Constance is one of the passengers. Wally's friend Basil has caused a freak accident with Voltair McGuines' cab, who wants his money for the damage. Basil asks Wally, but he has been disinherited and lost all credit by his grandfather, because he still wants Joan. Written by Anonymous

Contender for the worst film ever made
6 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has one redeeming grace- Jeanette MacDonald - whose grace, charm and star quality shine through every scene she is in - she takes this seriously, a sign of a great star!

There are few films as awful as this one: execrable acting, direction, script, cinematography, sound,editing,special effects - this is the PITS!!!!!!

Jeanette is a trouper, tried and true. Like Liz Taylor in Butterfield 8, - "when you know you're in a turkey, give it the best you got, you might be recognized"

Even Kay Francis is AWFUL - Oakie is embarrassing.

There are 5 songs/musical numbers. Oakie has 3 and Jeanette has 2 - one a duet. All are forgettable.

Available prints are washed out and blurry- maybe there is a God after all.

For MacDonald fans only - she only made 28 - to think Paramount actually released this debacle - if there was ever a case for shelving, this is it!
