Worth catching

I'm adding reviews for films that lack one, here goes.... 'Early Sturges film, grandfather is guardian to his 5 year old granddaughter, who he rearing with the help of a young nurse, his 'profession' is confidence trickster, at which he is talented; but things get complicated when the nurse starts dating a policeman. It's a mostly little known cast, apart from Lloyd Corrigan who is the standout as granddad, Gigi Perreau is rather to cute as his granddaughter; worth a look good film.'
