Storyline

A spoiled rich girl tries to elope with a ne'er-do-well, but they are stopped by a charming hobo, who thwarts the mismatch. The girl's father, an embattled ad executive, rewards the hobo with temporary room and board. It turns out the stranger is no hobo after all, but an educated young man who then comes to his host's rescue by composing a hit advertising slogan. The girl resents the stranger at first, but eventually she realizes she has fallen in love with him. Written by Dan Navarro <daneldorado@yahoo.com>

very charming leading man
26 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He's the kind of figure that Indy Jones might have modeled his clothing and attitude on. This Depression era movie includes all the usuals--the educated hobos who find freedom on the road, the silly cops, the spoiled upper class, the heiress who needs to be taught a lesson, the hapless wealthy father worried about financial affairs while nobody else seems to have the slightest concern, the casual approach to marriage among the elite, the wonderful clothes and cars and homes, the use and abuse of publicity, the glib conversation, the hectic pace, ...so one might expect it to be the same old same old. But it held my interest, largely because of the hero whose smile lit up the screen and the unusual aspect of creating radio playlets that featured carbon. I wanted to see how it came out.

It also shows that the word capiche was used in the 30s and came into common parlance from comic books.
