The Clements father and son live by the generosity of rich women. Max, the son, sets his sites on Lady Joan, who is rich, but down-to-earth and charming. At her house he meets Rosine Brown, an Austrian widow involved with a rich man. Instantly infatuated with her, Max pursues Rosine until she relents and agrees to marry him. But the elder Clement loses 4500 pounds gambling and Max decides he must marry Joan to prevent his father's imprisonment. Written by

It's quite simple: I have nothing, you have plenty. Swell! Okay by me!
Mrs. Rosine Brown:
Oh, I see. You have no objection to marrying a rich woman?
No, none at all! Why should I? Suppose I had everything and you were poor: I wouldn't mind that; I'd adore it.
Mrs. Rosine Brown:
Oh... you mean to say, you'd be quite content to be supported by a woman?
Oh, she wouldn't be supporting me. We'd split.

Talk about a great build up, then only to be totally let down. I so anticipated seeing this movie when it aired on Turner Classic Movies. It sounded interesting, and had all the hints of what one would think would be a really good naughty pre-code feature. Not so. It is one of the most boring films I've ever seen. The movie goes absolutely nowhere, and the only really worthwhile scenes are the ones between father and son gigolo team Montgomery and C. Aubrey Smith. Don't go out of your way to see this, it's a huge let down, at least in the eyes of this writer. Though I did watch it with a very respected classic film scholar, and his thoughts were exactly the same as mine, BORING!
