This film concerns a poor man named Douglas Fairbanks Jr., engage to an heiress, ( Margaret Lockwood, and one day he saves a woman (Laura La Plante) from drowning and falls in love with her. Douglas Fairbanks becomes deeply involved with Laura La Plante and finds himself hiding her in his apartment as a male servant. Douglas Fairbanks friends tease poor Laura La Plante and even threaten to hairbrush him/her and things get pretty upsetting. The men also want Laura La Plante to take off her/his clothes. There is plenty of great scenes and outstanding photography for a great classic film starring two great veteran actors. However, you must remember this is a very old English B Film and not filmed very often in the United States. If you like Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and like his early films, this is a film you will definitely enjoy.
