William Haines is suave...

as the wild playboy who depends on his uncle for money. One of the best light actors of the 20s and 30s, Haines shows off his stuff in this mild comedy; he's the whole show. What's important about this film is that it demonstrates what kind of career Haines could have had in Hollywood if he had been willing to play the game and "play straight." Because he wouldn't, Louis B. Mayer, scuttled his career (as he did John Gilbert's) and Haines quickly descended to B pictures. One of the top box-office draws of the late silent/early talkie period, Haines was washed up just a few years after this film. C. Aubrey Smith and Irene Purcell (lovely as the love interest) are fun.
