Cora and Matt have tons of money and have spent a lot just to be accepted into New York society. The problem is that New York society has very little money. Matt prefers lunch counters and regular clothes to fancy dining rooms and dinner clothes, but Cora wants to be in with the '400'. So they give the cash poor, but socially prominent, Marsh's money to have a little party in their honor, and Matt hires waitress Sandy to pose as their daughter. But Harley has already meet Sandy on the sidewalk, and even though he does not know who she is, he is in love with her. But Sandy does not like him. Written by

Not as bad as some here say. A tremendous showcase for Edward Everett Horton. His talking/singing duets with Ross Alexander are marvels of comic timing. Horton was in many better films than this, but few that showcased his talent as vividly. Ross Alexander has several scenes where he carries himself with great poise and comic sophistication. There is evidence here he could have been a stylish leading man had he not killed himself. Little known June Martel is surprisingly fetching as diner waitress, though she fades a little when masquerading as a debutant. The story construction is awful in this film but there is some snappy dialogue. In the end a must-see for Horton's and Alexander's musical numbers.
