Storyline

Joan Hollingsworth is the younger sister of Ethel and their mother believes Ethel is entitles to all the advantages until she acquires a husband, but Joan thinks otherwise. Forbidden to attend a family dinner given for socialite J. Waldo Barnes, the latest entry in the matrimonial sweepstakes, Joan poses as the family maid in receiving the guests. When her mother discovers her ruse, Joan sneaks out of the house and accepts a ride from a man, a burglar casing the house who thinks Joan is one of the gang. The car is wrecked and Joan escapes on foot, but is overtaken on the grounds of a large estate by motorcycle policeman Michael who accepts her story of being a maid on the estate. Her impersonation is aided by the nearsighted housekeeper, Mrs. Wiggins, who orders her to her room. Inside the mansion, Joan is trapped when the owner, J. Waldo Jones, returns. He decides she is a female "Raffles" who is in need of reform. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

It's by PRC....so it's going to stink, right?!
3 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Of all the so-called 'poverty row studios' perhaps the worst was tiny little PRC. Most of their films were very cheaply made and very forgettable. So, when I saw that "The Kid Sister" was from PRC, I assumed the worst but gave it a look anyway.

Joan (Judy Clark) is the forgotten daughter in the family. Her mother dotes on Joan's older sister and Joan is tired of being left out. So, when her family is having a party and Joan is told to stay in her room, she sneaks out by disguising herself as a maid. Then, though a series of crazy mistakes, she ends up getting hooked up with a thief, being chased by cops and hiding out in neighbors' homes. What's going to happy with kooky Joan?!

Overall, this is a silly and inconsequential film--sort of like an extended episode of some TV sit-com. Now this isn't to say it's bad...just silly and easy to forget--but it DOESN'T stink at least! I did like the befuddled guy who ends up befriending Joan...otherwise not a lot to make this a must-see--more just a mildly interesting time-passer. A score of 4 is great for a PRC film.
