OK comedy of greed, ambition a family you want to kick to the curb.
14 March 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

When good fortune strikes a nice young lady, fortune hunters come out of the woodwork to take advantage of it. Most of it is her own family, ne'er do wells most of them, all using her with the exception of her kind father. The fortunate lady wins the lottery, a sweepstakes ticket where she is given the grand prize after being offered $25,000 for the ticket which she ends up getting more for. Her resentful family isn't happy with the paltry $25,000 she gives them and so she walks out on them, apparently for good. Now living in luxury, she can't escape the fortune hunters (a broke European Baron of course) and her family comes back to throw a wrench into a lavish party she throws.

This is basically an enjoyable low-budget film with Marian Nixon the sweet heroine and Tom Brown the hard-working beau she throws over due to misunderstandings concerning the family. Inez Courtney offers brittle wisecracks as her hard-boiled friend who calls a spade a spade, and tries to point out the truth about her family. As for them, they are a bunch of annoying social climbers, and one of them (Carol Tevis) will annoy you with her voice that makes Butterfly McQueen sound like Ezio Pinza. Made before the screwball comedy onslaught created by the success of "My Man Godfrey", this is actually ahead of the game, and had it the luxury of an "A" studio and "A" cast with "A" writers and director, it may have been "A-OK".
