Storyline

Modeling furs has given our heroine Cookie a taste for them, so she's determined to marry a rich man. Scheduled to meet a male model aboard a yacht, she meets the yacht's rich owner Dick Smith instead; he welcomes the confusion of identity and sets out to win her by force of personality alone. It's an uphill battle. Lots of wry repartee. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

another fun oldie they Never show on TV anymore
6 April 2007 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Boy meets girl; Boy (Gene Raymond, who sings a song in this one!)devises scheme to spend more time with girl Cookie, Ann Sothern(what movie Wasn't she in, from the 1920ss - 1980s ? It all works out in the end. Clever banter in several scenes, like when Gene tries to get the home address for a model he had just met. Helen Broderick puts him down over & over again with quick zingers. Etta McDaniel (Hattie McDaniel's sister) plays the maid. Eric Blore, the droll butler as always switches places with Gene Raymond, and keeps messing up the Master Plan; Erik Rhodes plays the rich foreigner that massacres the English language, as usual. Fun romp. Look for Alan Curtis, who had leading roles in Mannequin, High Sierra, and the Philo Vance movies of the 1940s.
