Despite the silliness of the plot, the movie is worth a look simply for the 30's set styles. Also of interest is the actors' speech patterns and ridiculous accents ("oh, let's do try again!"). After 1930 when "talkies" came out, actors were required to take diction classes. This movie has all the makings of a "good" film - for its day: "upper class" characters (those silly rich people), beautiful sets (this was The Depression and most Americans had humble homes), and, of course, "sexual tension" (as sexually tense as it could be in 1934).
