I knew when I met you tonight that you'd come in handy.
Well that's very kind of you.
But I couldn't figure out how until a minute ago. I suppose you know everyone in the social register don't you?
Well everyone worth knowing. Of course that eliminates most of them.

The plot for this movie has been used numerous times before and numerous times since. It's the old 'poor girl' passes herself off as 'rich girl' in order to meet 'rich guy' who in turn is not so rich himself and is hoping to meet a 'rich girl' of his own.
It was nice to see Edward Gargan in one of his usual slow witted character roles. This time around he plays a truck driver who has a very short almost non existent fuse which offsets some of his geniality.
The early scenes between Irene Ware and Sidney Blackmer have some nice repartee particularly in the cooking scene. However most of the later dialogue in the film is fairly flat and standard.
It all wraps up in about 64 minutes so you won't invest a whole lot of time or effort into seeing this through to the end.
