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.

Carole Lombard steals any film that she's in and this film is no exception. Yes, she played Kay Colby, a wealthy bored heiress. She is expected to marry Cesar Romero's character who takes off for months to Japan on a work assignment for his boss, Scott Miller (played by Preston Foster). Scott Miller and Kay Colby have a love and hate relationship during her fiancé's absence. I don't think that Scott Miller was that bad. The best scenes take place when Kay and her fiancé are on their small boat in the waters while Miller does his best to assist his employee and his fiancé during a storm. But Kay is stubborn to admit any feelings for Scott Miller. I thought the scene at the restaurant with her fiancé where the table get circling but annoying. The film is a slapstick comedy during the old studio system and when stars like Lombard made several films a year. Not all films were gems but this one is entertaining though after all.
