Storyline

Norah is very rich, owns her own shipyard and has Sylvia double for her at all outside functions. But Sylvia is now married and wants to go to Washington with her new husband while Norah's latest fiance has dumped her. Determined not to make money an issue, she invites all the officers to her house for tea and has Sylvia again play Norah. She is looking for the right man who will want her and not her money and she thinks that she has found that man in Captain Travis. The only problem is that Travis is interested in the Norah double because of her millions. So Norah waits to see if he will propose to her for herself instead of proposing to Sylvia for the money.

A nice diversion.
26 August 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Soon after this film began, I had remembered seeing this story before in the form of "The Richest Girl in the World" with Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea. Aside from a few updates here and there (such as making the leading man an Army Air Corps flier recuperating from some unnamed illness or injury), the story is the same. There is a super-mega-rich lady (Laraine Day) who is a bit of a recluse. And, to shield her identity, her personal assistant (Marsha Hunt) poses as the rich heiress. However, when a dashing officer (Alan Marshall) begins to show attention to both Day and Hunt, Day is smitten--but unsure who he will choose--the one with the money or her (who actually has all the money). It's all very slight plot-wise and I still think the original is better--and more original! But the actors all do a good job (particularly Edgar Buchanan in a supporting role) and it's a nice pleasant diversion--a decent romantic comedy with some nice laughs and a very game cast.

By the way, while Alan Marshall looked quite nice in the film, he was an inexplicable choice as he was an Australian. Why this guy would be in the US military and not the Australian one is a puzzler...though the same could be said for many of Errol Flynn's films as well!
