A charming little farce with a classy wardrobe
31 May 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Remember the days when men used tons of hair gel, wore wing-tips and had suits so sharp you could cut yourself? And remember the dames with sheer sateen dresses with low-cut backs that oozed style and class?? This film must have spent a bundle just on the wardrobe changes.

Annoyed by the tardiness of her fiancée a lady marries her lawyer Henry in a spur of the moment act of revenge. On the honey-moon her finacee shows up and she decides to forgive him, however she starts to see a side of Henry she has never seen before.

Encounter many hilarious 1930s style capers and physical comedy as the couples bungle their way though a charming sitting-room farce. Guys and dames are a plenty in this film that represents the essence of 1930s jazz age America.
