Fun, frothy 30's comedy
20 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful 30's comedy with Ray Milland and Olympe Bradna as a secretly married couple who cannot reveal their marriage (which happened abroad) and try to thwart his marriage to a rich heiress to save his family from bankruptcy. The family is the typical daffy characters: arrogant dad, befuddled mom, spoiled sister and various servants who have plenty of one liners. The charming part is seeing Olympe Bradna pretending to be their maid and getting to know the family and win over their hearts as she shields from them the truth of their marriage. Enjoyable thirties comedy that is worth a look and can be found online
