GENRE:
Comedy, Musical
Adolphe Menjou and Martha Scott shine in this hilarious comedy of manners from writer/director Andrew L. Stone (Confidence Girl, Stormy Weather). Spurned suitors and swindlers run amok as an angry father sets about writing some wrongs when his wife and daughter are taken by a con man. Look for Billie Burke (The Wizard of Oz), Dennis O’Keefe, and former silent screen temptress Pola Negri in one of her final roles. You’ll also enjoy the Academy Award nominated musical score by Phil Boutelje, as well as an early career performance by songbird June Havoc! (BW)
