Movie Info

The wealthy Kilbourne family is tired of Mrs. Kilbourne (Billie Burke) hiring ex-convicts as servants. After a servant steals the family's silver, Mrs. Kilbourne agrees to never hire another drifter for help. But when a rough-looking man named Rawlins (Brian Aherne) arrives at her doorstep, she cannot help but hire him as the new chauffeur. As Rawlins catches the eye of their oldest daughter, Jerry (Constance Bennett), the Kilbournes realize that he may not be the vagrant he claims to be.

Critic Reviews for Merrily We Live

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (1)

  • [Merrily We Live relies] neither on wit of dialogue nor on situation, but on the simple assumption that if everybody behaves in the manner of escaped lunatics not only the keeper but also those outside the asylum will be amused.

  • It's all in the acting and directing. Director Norman Z. McLeod has the knack of building up gags until he has three or four racing each other to the big laugh.

    February 23, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Merrily We Live is completely hay-wired for comedy and should make everybody happy, if slightly unhinged, for an hour and a half.

    This movie is silly and has some good comedy, but it's not that good.
