When Crawford is "disguised as a boy" she is wearing full female make-up, including the wide "Crawford mouth" lipstick she made popular. No one would believe this was a boy. See more »

Hmmm! Looks like we're going to spend the night with some pretty important ghosts, all them Louises.
Well, I'd rather enjoy meeting Richelieu. I want to see if he really looks like George Arliss.

Daffy road comedy stars a gorgeous, glowing Crawford
This one is worth seeing for Crawford's delightful performance: she positively glows as the madcap heiress on the run. Despite the silly story and uneven performance from Gable (his legendary chemistry with Crawford is nonetheless in evidence), there is always the snappy dialogue (much of it written by John Lee Mahin of "Red Dust" and "Bombshell"), to keep the laughs coming. Crawford's then husband Franchot Tone plays Gable's fellow reporter. For anyone who wonders why she is called the ultimate movie star.
