Jane Palmer is suspected of insanity after squandering her inheritance, and a young psychiatrist, Dr. Enright, is assigned to her case. Posing as her chauffeur, he drives her out west to her rich grandmother, from whom Jane hopes to recoup her fortune. The grandmother refuses her money, but allows her to work the family's played-out gold mine. As part of his treatment, Enright "salts" the mine with gold and, unintentionally, brings on a gold-rush and a group of government assayers. They find the mine rich in mercury ore and new riches for Hope, who is now more interested in her "chauffeur."Written by

This is not one of her better or better known films and Patrick Knowles, handsome Brit, is not quite up to her stature as a big movie star but she IS charming as usual and there are a few laughs and Ralph Bellamy in support is also a welcome player, as is Eugene Palette. Irene is doing here a screwball comedy in which she excelled but the script is not up to her usual comedies, including THE AWFUL TRUTH and MY FAVORITE WIFE. Still if you are an Irene fan, its worth a visit for an hour and a half. Miss Dunne was at RKO and then went to Universal...This was at Universal and she would soon go over to MGM and make some of the best films of her career. She is beautiful as always.
