Picturegoer Weekly: 22nd June 1935

Simple comedy with a transparent plot, but quite well presented and competently acted. It deals in an ingenious manner with an impecunious baronet who married an American heiress, the recent purchaser of a picturesque local inn.

At first he is too bone lazy, but finally complications arising from attempts by his wife's cousin to relieve his brother-in-law of important government papers bring matters to a head - and a happy issue.

Ian Hunter makes his artificial role attractive by the strength of his personality, and Claire Luce is quite glamourous as his wife.

Sound villainy is put over by Bernard Nedell.

N.B. Picturegoer wrongly credits Julius Hagen, the producer, as being the director.
