It was a pretty lucky turn of events that left down and out Louis Hayward and his friend J.C. Nugent fresh from being cleaned out at the racetrack at the abandoned home of a rich family. These two really hit the jackpot when it is assumed that Hayward is the long lost son of the wealthy family that owns the house. Pretty good for a pair of Midnight Intruders.
But the real scion of this society family is living with his wife under an assumed name and under that name Eric Linden has been arrested for murder. The wife of Linden Sheila Bromley goes to Hayward and won't spoil his masquerade if he'll help clear her husband.
Hayward's getting kind of used to this easy living and with the most charm in film this side of David Niven it all kind of works out in the end.
This is a nice breezy comedy with a role that fits Louis Hayward like a glove. I'm rediscovering Hayward and you classic film fans should do so as well.
