Edward Everett Horton is about to be married to Wendy Barrie, but out of the blue a young man (Albert Burdon) shows up claiming to be his love-child son from World War I. Of course Horton assumes this to be true without asking for any proof. But how to explain the "boy" to Barrie and her starchy family? He dragoons his pal (Leslie Henson) in helping with a charade.

In another plot, Heather Thatcher is a successful novelist who writes cheesy books under a man's name. She runs into pal Barrie and gets involved in the wedding preparations. When grasping for a man's name to tell the father, Horton spies the novel and blurts out the authors name as the boy's father. But the author is really a woman (Thatcher).

After more complications, both Henson and Burdon end up in drag claiming to be the woman author until each is unmasked, Thatcher comes forward as the author, and Burdon is exposed as a con artist.

It's all pretty silly but funny. And it gets funnier as it goes along. Horton is, as always, quite good as the flustered groom. Henson and Burdon are really funny as ugly women. Thatcher is breezy, Barrie is pretty. Alfred Drayton and Helen Haye are the parents. Robertson Hare is the beleaguered butler, and Joyce Kirby is the savvy maid.

Worth a look.
