A headstrong young girl falls completely for a writer of trashy novels, and insinuates herself into his household, all to the chagrin of her erstwhile fiancé.He conspires with the author's wife to show the girl how foolish she's been.
Stanley Lupino made 13 films in the thirties most of which have a play as their source.This film utilised one of his plays.It is co directed by his cousin Lupino Lane who was an experienced film director.So they are both equally to blame for this hopefully unfunny farce.There is one musical number which is unimaginative staged save for one brief overheated shot.Maybe the primitives of sound may have been partly to blame.You can hear the clicks on the soundtrack where it has been edited,clearly the editor did not know how to properly bloop the track.Some of Lupinos later films such as Happy and Over She Goes we're quite good.Presumably by then he was able to tailor his material to this new medium.If this was typical of plays staged.in that era then playhouses must have been easily pleased.
