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>

Erik Rhodes surmounts the material
16 March 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

To me one of the funniest supporting actors of the 30s was Erik Rhodes.Who will ever forget his Italian Count in Top Hat.In this Warners B feature he gets as near as he would ever do to star billing.He plays a would be chef who relies more on his foreign name rather than ability to get a top job at the Ritz.In reality his mum is the great chef.The main lead is William Gargan.The best way i can describe him is a poor mans James Cagney.Mind you even Cagney would have had to strain to extract laughs out of this rather threadbare plot.Whilst i always enjoy seeing Allan Jenkins even he has to overact wildly to extract any laughs from a script which seems to have been polished off in a couple of hours.
