Funny film for what it was.
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short film -- one hour -- had a delightfully implausible plot and a few meaningless loose ends, but it provided the laughs. Betty Furness played Sheila Hunter very well, an independent-minded heiress who falls for the "nut," Jim Tyler (Gordon Jones). The story moved nicely, and Jones was so goofy that you knew the conflicts wouldn't last. (In an hour, they couldn't.)

E.E. Clive as Stiles the Butler is delightful, as is the young Patsy Parson's as the granddaughter.

On an evening for a laugh, it's well worth a look. My wife and I enjoyed it.
