Good forerunner of what was to come
28 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good early-Black cast comedy (including Spencer Williams, the future "Andy" of Amos and Andy fame) about a rich lady who is in love with her chauffeur and his hairbrained scheme to try to get the girl's father to approve (does it work? Watch it and see).

Pretty amusing, if not belly-laugh inducing stuff. The characters and the actors who play them are quite pleasant and likable, and this comedy is not as grossly stereotyped as one would expect form the times. Roberta Hyson, who did not get the fame she deserved, is particularly appealing, charming, and funny which proves that a pretty girl can also be a great comedienne.
