Storyline

At the urging of her curmudgeon old grandfather Jerome Cedric (C. Aubrey Smith), spoiled rich kid Annie Holt (Carole Lombard) is forced to marry into royalty in order to save her banker father, Bill Holt (Walter Connolly), from financial ruin. The man she really desires is Tony Gage (Lyle Talbot). It takes a well-written insurance policy and a sacrificial act on the part of a close relative to re-unite Annie and Tony. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Well-made, worth seeing
10 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of Carole Lombard's best early films. It goes a long way to sort of proving that it was Harry Cohn and Columbia Pictures, not the actress's home studio Paramount, that gave her the chance to shine most. The casting in this picture is flawless-- Lyle Talbot turns in a surprisingly good performance as the romantic interest and generates a lot of chemistry with Lombard; C. Aubrey Smith is letter-perfect in his villainous role as the tyrannical grandfather; and both Louise Closser Hale as the charming grandmother and Walter Connolly as the financially- troubled father give the story its heart and soul. Even the smaller roles (the catty rival, and the European prince) are filled by capable performers. But it's the story that captivates the viewer. An opposites-attract romance, it combines elements of comedy and melodrama, moves briskly and is very entertaining. For a product from a then-poverty row studio, this Columbia Pictures release is as sharp and polished as anything that came out of MGM or Paramount at this time. Highly recommended and worth seeing!
