The Clements father and son live by the generosity of rich women. Max, the son, sets his sites on Lady Joan, who is rich, but down-to-earth and charming. At her house he meets Rosine Brown, an Austrian widow involved with a rich man. Instantly infatuated with her, Max pursues Rosine until she relents and agrees to marry him. But the elder Clement loses 4500 pounds gambling and Max decides he must marry Joan to prevent his father's imprisonment.Written by

Based on the play "The Truth Game" by Ivor Novello which opened on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, 243 W. 47th St., on December 27, 1930 and ran for 107 performances until March 1931. See more »
I saw in this film a very touching familial relationship, between a father and his son. The son nearly sacrificed himself to save his father. So many commenters have absorbed the feminist view that abhors an aggressive male pursuing a female. Granted there are limits to how aggressive a man can be before he's reported to police for stalking. However, I think in this movie, the aggression was comically exaggerated and not meant to be taken seriously. It's just a movie (from 1932!) and the characters don't always need to be role models of correct behavior.
