Showgirl Maisie Ravier (Ann Sothern) gets fired from her sideshow job due to a drunken prank by rich jerk Bob Rawlston (Lew Ayres). He lends her his car but then she gets arrested and Rawlston claims to not remember the incident. The judge orders him to hire her for two months to replace her lost wages. She becomes a maid at the Rawlston mansion. Bob is a lousy drunk. His kind-hearted sister Abby (Maureen O'Sullivan) is getting married to the sleazy golddigging Link Phillips. Most of their friends are jerks. Their father Cap is often absent and the siblings are troubled.
The premise is a little ridiculous. There has to be a better way to get Maisie working as a maid in that mansion. Otherwise, it's a fine Maisie movie. It's not as jokey as the others. The suicide attempt sucks out a lot of the fun but the movie wasn't strictly fun in the mansion anyways. The jerk friends are annoying and it may be useful to have a feistier Maisie. She doesn't get into their face until Cap comes home. The acting is solid all around. It could use more humor. This is a more serious affair.
