Charley is invited to a high class party and he feels ill at ease, as he has no idea how to act--yet he wants to impress his lady. When one of the guest suggests he just copy the manners of one of the society ladies there, all goes wrong. And, each time something embarrassing happens, there was inexplicably some very loud, inappropriate and unfunny musical sound effects. As the film continued, it only got worse until by the end of the film I was ready to scream. Now, with the summary above you'd probably assume I hated Charley Chase but this couldn't be further from the truth--I just hate this awful and totally unfunny comedy. When Chase was on his A-game (such as in MIGHTY LIKE A MOOSE), he was hilarious and tough to beat but he also made a bunch of mediocre films and even a few bad ones here and there. Of the three or four dozen films of his I have seen, this is by far the worst. Avoid it and try ANY other Chase film.
