Tom Walls is a gentleman thief.We first encounter him in a casino in France.Here he teams up for no good reason other than American distribution with an American counterpart played by Hartley Powers.Walls is after a rich ladies stocks and bonds.He goes on to a private yacht and then on to a country house where everyone seems to be attired in evening dress.The rich lady wants to give away her jewels but her daughter resentful of this takes a bracelet.the police are called.Walls manages to get hold of the bracelet and plant it on the daughters obnoxious fiancée.The police rue the fact that they are unable to nab Walls for the theft.I note that this is supposed to be a comedy.Unfortunately the humour has evaporated with age.I cant say that i have ever been that fond of Walls as a farceur and nothing in this dull film changes my mind on that point.
