A spoiled playboy is forced to leave town to avoid the press, which latches on to his statement, while tipsy, that he will give away his fortune. He disguises himself and gets a job as a laborer at a day-care center. He finds himself attracted to the owner, a pretty young girl determined to make life better for her charges, and he soon begins to question his own priorities. Written by
Douglass Montgomery makes this film a delight- with his considerable charm and his Errol Flynn-like physical charisma. The plot is silly but there are some good lines and it moves quickly.
Montgomery plays William Addington Drake IV, heir to a fortune, but an irresponsible playboy. To escape the press and some impolitic remarks about giving away his fortune (while under the influence) he goes incognito as a hired hand in a day care center. Here he manages to fall in love with the proprietress, Carole Martin (charmingly played by Jean Parker), and while working for a living for the first time, does an about face on his pampered and idle existence.
There is a subtle message aimed against the monied classes (which works in this context, being post-depression). It doesn't get too much in the way though and this turns out to be a deft and delightful romantic film, although the title has little to do with the plot.
Particularly good is teenager, Edith Fellows, as Martin's male-hating charge, who tries to nip the budding romance, so that she won't lose her teacher's affection. The rest of the cast is quite professional and the ensemble acting is all carried off quite well.
Worth a viewing.
