Movie Info

In this romance, an Indiana girl travels to the Big Apple to fulfil her dream of becoming a singer. There she intends to visit her half-brother who said that he was a wealthy businessman. In reality, he is the chief valet for a famous composer. The girl, wanting the composer's help in establishing her career, is hired on as a domestic servant by her brother. Unfortunately, when the protective valet begins believing that the composer is interested in her, he fires her. His suspicions were correct and the two do indeed become romantically involved. His attempts to break them apart are futile and the film ends on a happy note. Songs include: an aria from Puccini's "Turandot," a medley of Russian songs, "In the Spirit of the Moment," and "When You're Away."more

Audience Reviews for His Butler's Sister

An interesting film that's similar in tone to Borzage's Depression era work. Thematically, though, it's really rather dull. Franchot Tone is wonderful as always.
