Lester Dorr (Attendant), Earl Eby (Entertainer) and Robert McKenzie are in studio records/casting call lists as actors in this movie but they never appeared. Eby may have been the pianist at Dubin's, but he is never shown. Bert Roach is listed as "The Host" in the onscreen credits and may possibly be seen in long-shot in one of the party scenes, but for all practical purposes he was deleted from the final print. Some of the other actors can be briefly seen but have no lines. There may have been extensive editing, since it is listed in studio records as an 8-reel production, but only runs 70 minutes.

You're not planning on coming with me, by any chance?
Certainly not. I have better ways to spend my declining weekends, dear.

A rich man pursues a young woman although her boyfriend works for him. This breezy film is an apt vehicle for the comedic talents of the incomparable Lombard, who plays the woman in a love triangle involving Foster and Romero. The role of the rich fellow seems tailor-made for Clark Gable, but Foster, who was better known for playing tough guys, does pretty well as a poor man's Gable. Beecher is a delight as Lombard's wise-cracking mother. Although only one is credited, apparently a number of writers were involved, including Preston Sturges. However, the film does not suffer from too many cooks in the kitchen, as the pacing is rapid and the dialog is witty. Lang provides the smooth direction.
