We find con-man Ingraham Steward living by his wits by steering wealthy Paris visitors to sellers of fake paintings and other assorted dodges. He and his wife, Agatha, have been separated for 15 years, but he promises to give their daughter, Joyce, a lavish wedding at his "château" in France. The fact that he doesn't have a château in France is just a minor trifle. He induces the caretaker, Bill Cherau, of a large country estate to allow it to be used for the wedding. The wedding party arrives and Bill falls madly in love with Joyce and she with him, but a gal has gotta do what a gal has gotta do, and her intended marriage to stuffed-shirt Horace Miller stays on the books.

The main reason to see this film is the familiar supporting cast.We have Reginald Denny,Vladimir Sokoloff,E.E.Clive,Erik Rhodes and Herman Bing to name but a few.When they are on screen this film lights up.When they are off you just have to sit through a film which is rather to familiar in the clichés that it employs.These actors typify the Golden Age of Hollywood.It is just a great shame that their like no longer seem to exist,or if they do they do not appear in films.Frank Morgan gives his usual stylish performance.The juve leads are typical of the era and eminently forgettable.Worth a look if the supporting cast interest you.
