"Servants Entrance" is a good, funny comedy with a silly storyline which must have passed for an 'escapist' picture, this being the depths of the depression. Janet Gaynor is an heiress who feels she must go out and get a job after her wealthy father's business goes under. She learns right off that she has no skills, and falls into a housemaid's job. Lew Ayres is the chauffeur of the household in question, and takes an instant dislike to our tiny heroine. Naturally, things change before the end of the movie.
There are several hilarious scenes sprinkled throughout the film, the best, as a previous reviewer noted, is with Ned Sparks as a humorless cartoonist. Another scene is animated by the Disney studio and is a sheer delight - moviegoers will recognize the voice of one of the characters as the voice of 'Goofy', Pinto Colvig. Also in the cast is Ann Doran, in a small role as a maid. She is one of the contenders for Most Screen Credits, with 358.
"Servants Entrance" is an amiable enough comedy and is a forerunner of what was to become a staple of the 30's, a screwball comedy. All concerned do good work, and strangely enough, this picture is supposed to take place in Sweden!
