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.

    This was made one year after "My Man Godfrey" and has virtually the same plot: a well-to-do family of nutty eccentrics takes in a homeless man and hijinks ensue, much to everyone's joy. It's fun, wacky, but still not as good as Godfrey. Billie Burke got a Best Supporting Actress nod, and Clarence Kolb has a stairway bit that is well performed. Alan Mobrey does his exasperated butler and Patsy Kelly her wiseacre maid.

    Silly piece of fluff but as play by experts it's quite enjoyable.

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