Bob: Go? You're not going to through me out just because I'm an earl! Oh, be reasonable, sir. I not only need my job, I want promotion to keep up the family ruins! Don't let me down now that I'm up in the world!

A reporter is accused of theft when she poses as a star's maid. And gets into an awful pickle when she tries to explain that she really IS a reporter, not just a maid ;-)

The songs are better than the movie in general, but all up this is pretty enjoyable fare. Rating; about a 6 or 7 out of 10.
