An out-of-work professor gets a break from an old college buddy to teach at an exclusive girl's school. But events conspire against him: he finds an abandoned child which he takes under his wing, despite the school's rules against teachers having a family; and the girls in the school resent his replacing a handsome and popular teacher, and do everything in their power to get him fired.

This movie is one of the most tenderhearted that I have seen in a long time. I was surprised by how touching some of the scenes were. If you can convince your kids to watch a b&w movie, it is an excellent family movie. There were even a few places in the movie that made me almost cry. Briefly, it is the story of an out-of-work teacher who finds an abandoned baby after saving a young woman from suicide. How he deals with his growing attachment to the baby, and his new job, makes for a wonderfully warm movie. Eddie Cantor was an excellent choice for the lead part, although he only sings one song in the movie. Also, the baby in this movie really steals the show.
