Alimonies, Vacation and Wedding Ring
3 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

When the wealthy Wall Street businessman Chester Hamilton (Sidney Blackmer) is arrested for missing the payment of due alimonies to his ex-wife, he finds his butler Oswald Groggs (Charles Ruggles) in the jail arrested for the same motive. Chester gives US$ 2,500.00 to Oswald to pay his debts, but the butler gives only part of the money to his ex-wife and travels to the seashore on vacation pretending to be the wealthy "Sir" Oswald Groggs. The gold digger Phyllis Van Kamp a.k.a. Fanny Malone (Verree Teasdale) mistakenly believes he is an aristocrat British playboy and has a brief affair with him. Oswald falls in love for her and pays her expensive hotel bill and buys a valuable ring among other presents; after draining his money, Fanny leaves him. Oswald returns to Chester's home and he has a surprise when he finds that his boss has just married Fanny. He tells the truth to Chester and together with his friends and his secretary Dorothy Blaine (Phyllis Barry), they plot a scheme against Fanny to get a divorce.

In 2009, it is funny to see the moral values and clichés of 1933 in this dated but entertaining comedy. The well succeeded men are white; the servants are mostly black; the women are gold diggers or a fragile and naive secretary in love with her boss. The DVD released by Alpha Home Entertainment is not restored and has a bad quality of image and sound which associated to the absence of subtitles make difficult for a foreigner to understand part of the dialogs. My vote is six.
