excellent comedy - I rate it a 10!
26 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of Robert Montgomery's best comedy situations. I am trying to find a DVD or VHS copy to purchase. None are available. All characters are portrayed to perfection. The pace is perfect, editing is excellent, great photography. Humorous situations take the viewer by surprise. You can tell that it was from a successful Broadway production. The writing is superb.

Reginald Owens does a terrific job as do all the other beautifully cast actors and actresses. This picture is a classic because it fits in so well with today's world as it also did in 1931.

Its message is timeless.

Clara played by Charlotte Greenwood is an added treat. C. Aubrey Smith emotes superbly under the most adverse conditions while a young Robert Montgomery is at his peak!
