Starring Rudolph Valentino as Jack Tripper
14 July 2005 | by poccaSee all my reviews

The basic storyline is of a type that can still be found in television sitcoms: for various complicated reasons the characters agree to pretend to be other people, a scenario that of course is bound to go very, very wrong. To impress a millionaire, Elizabeth, played by Carmel Myers (a likable ingénue) and Richard (Rudolph Valentino) agree to impersonate their richer older friends, who in turn pretend to be the butler and maid. Things begin to fall apart immediately when the blustering, cigar smoking millionaire starts lusting after the maid and seems creepily determined to get Richard and Elizabeth started on a family (he threatens to carry Myers upstairs if she doesn't start moving herself, and more or less undresses Valentino and puts him to bed). Much of the humour in this film arises retrospectively from Valentino's later reputation as a romantic idol--although he looks quite sexy in his white silk pajamas, Myers is almost as distressed by the sight of him as Elsa Lanchester is by the Frankenstein monster

A particularly enjoyable film for Valentino fans interested in seeing him in a atypical role, but fun in its own right.
