Misleading title
6 December 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

If you think that this is all about a press baron then you would be wrong.In fact the title is a rather weak pun.June Clyde plays an American journalist whom Hugh Williams wants to knock down to size.Instead he falls in love with her.He poses as a simple farmer living in a rustic farmhouse whereas he is actually Lord of the Manor living in a grand house.If it sounds familiar well it is.So many films and shows of this period eg "Me and My Girl" "Damsels In Distress",seem to inhabit the same world,to much better effect.The problem with this film is that it is unoriginal,and by and large unfunny.Hugh Williams looks his usual urbane self and June Clyde plays her usual bright American.Clearly this film was made for distributors RKO Radio with the intention of getting double quota for this film as it does not have the cheap £1 per foot look of many of its predeccessors.It is not boring but very much run of the mill.
