Storyline

Max and his father are both looking to marry wealthy women. The task would be far easier if either one of them had any money of their own. Max decides on Martha, but Martha says no when he says that he is poor as she admits she is also. So she accepts the proposal of Sir Kelvin, but changes her mind by the next day. When Florian tries to win money gambling for Max's wedding, he loses a bundle. When Max finds out about the debt, he decides to marry the wealthy Lady Joan to keep Florian out of jail. But Max is not in love with Lady Joan. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Good Cast Makes It Worth Watching
27 July 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Shiftless father and son (Nigel Bruce, Robert Cummings) are looking for rich women to marry. The son falls in love with a woman (Ruth Hussey) but she's as broke as he is. What in the world will happen next? Predictable but easygoing comedy. Short runtime and good cast helps. Bob Cummings is fun. Ruth Hussey is lovely and charming. Change of pace roles for Nigel Bruce and Judith Anderson. Both are great. It's especially nice seeing Judith Anderson playing a light-hearted character. I'm used to seeing her play characters more like the one she played in Rebecca. There's nothing here you haven't seen before and better but it's a pleasant enough way to kill an hour.
