Monthly Film Bulletin: January 1935
A comedy of impoverished aristocracy endeavouring to retrieve the family fortune by marrying the lazy eldest son to an American heiress. A very English background of old manors, retainers, dogs and much talk of beer. The purely farcical moments were quite entertaining, but such an incredible story needs more pace and a lighter touch throughout.
