Marian Marsh and Norman Foster are a couple of likable young kids in love whose path together turns rocky when an embezzling banker is apparently knocked off and chauffeur Foster is fingered for the crime. Amusingly complicated narrative peopled with a wild array of supporting characters (a wisecracking roommate, a shady blackmailer, a bleeding-heart lawyer, a stuttering auto-mechanic, an old maid landlady, etc.). Despite some overacting, this curious early talkie doesn't creak too much, and director Victor Schertzinger has a snappy sense of pacing and a good eye for details. It all leads to a nick-of-time climax, which is pulled off with aplomb. **1/2 from ****
