This was one of the hits of Capitolfest in 2019! It is a funny send-up to old-fashioned melodramas (which were old hat even in 1933 when this comedy was made). Pat Somerset is True Blue Harold, a hardworking hero through and through, who loves adorable Marion Byron, but the dastardly Simon Flint (Robert Ellis) wants to break them up and take her for himself.
The comedy is outrageous and filled with stereotypical characters including a femme fatal and a wild airborne chase. It is a laugh riot from start to finish, a hidden gem that needs to be released.
