Storyline

Duke Regan is the hight-pressure, irresponsible promotions/marketing/press agent at the Ritz Hotel. He gets the taste of the home cooking done by the mother of Marcia Jaynos, but thinks it was done by her brother,Leopold, who has delusions of being a great chef and the ability to delude Duke into the same, even to the point of selling him to the Ritz as a famous foreign chef. Sound like a job for Mama. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Predictable But Fun
14 June 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Wisecracking William Gargan wangles an invite to a pretty girl's home for dinner. He hits on the brilliant scheme of making her brother a culinary star.

(Such stardom was probably a far less common event in the 1930s than it is now. In Europe, not to mention in the little old USA.) We can pretty much guess what problems will ensure. The brother, played very amusingly by Erik Rhodes, maybe is not such a great cook ....

Still, it has a great supporting cast. The script is definitely not polished as it would be for a major movie. But it's clever and holds our attention.

Things end happily but, for some of the characters, disappointingly.
