Hilarius - Maurice Chevalier and Stuart Erwin are terrific as usual.
17 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a treat from start to finish- lots of fun. The entire cast was in great form.

A waiter (Maurice Chevalier) receives a vast inheritance and becomes a club-hopping playboy by night (with Stu Irwin as side-kick) and working in a café by day. Stuart Irwin and Eugene Palette also work in the restaurant (in the kitchen). O.P. Heggie is entertaining as the scheming proprietor of the café with Frances Dee as his daughter. Not much as a musical, enjoyable primarily as a chaotic 1930's style comedy.

Maurice Chevalier and Stuart Erwin are terrific as usual. Fans of either of these two exceptional talents will not want to miss.
