Lazybones (1935)

Hunter is a ne'er-do-well baronet who's lost his patrimony. After meeting American heiress Luce, Hunter thinks a marriage will help him recoup his lost fortune, but, after the nuptials, it proves that she is just as penniless. Her nefarious cousin Nedell steals some official government papers and tries to blackmail Luce into leaving her husband. She won't do it and with the aid of Hunter -- dubbed "Lazybones" by his family -- Nedell is stopped and forced to return to America. There are some good moments in this enjoyable romantic comedy. An early directorial effort for the maker of The Red Shoes and Peeping Tom.
