Prince Vidor?
2 June 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

King Vidor was still working his way into the movie industry at this point. He contributed the script for this nicely turned little comedy. Reggie Morris moves into his sister's house to take care of it while she is out of town and gets involved with his neighbor. Photographed in a straightforward manner, the comic situations are amusing enough and the leads charming enough to make this a pleasant little movie.

The only major name in this production, Vidor had a very long and occasionally distinguished career. It's impossible to tell how much of the comedy treatment was his, but the charm of the characters bespeaks his later efforts. On any terms, this is a nice little comedy.
