When your aunt asked me not to mention it, sir, I didn't say that I wouldn't mention it, and as I felt it my duty to mention it, I mentioned it.
Thanks. I'm very grateful you did mention it.

I am grateful for one of the other reviewers pointing out that Arthur Chesney was the brother of Edmund Gwenn.Every time I looked at him I noted the resemblance.This film is a minor comedy which is a child of its time.This film was made at the height of the depression,so it was clearly a fantasy for most people to see someone claiming to be penniless whereas in reality they are rich.Wakefield brings Batty and Helen to his flat to acquire more material for his book.However not surprisingly he falls in love with Helen.However she doesn't want to know when she finds out he is engaged.It has to be said that apart from her manner,the fiancée looks a better bet than Helen.However it wouldn't be a 30s film if he didn't end up with Helen.A minor comedy but passes a pleasant 70 minutes.
