A lightning-fast screwball comedy about a family full of lunatics whose only sane member is Hendrix. When a rich relative dies and leaves a multi-million dollar will, the entire family's presence is requested, including Hendrix's irresponsible nitwit brother. The big problem, however, is

finding him. Unfortunately he slipped away from his keeper, Fitzgerald, while vacationing in Hawaii, leaving no signs of his whereabouts. Fitzgerald's feeble solution is to hire Lund, a Hollywood stunt man, to impersonate the brother in order for Hendrix to receive her inheritance. Their scam

seems easy enough until Lund falls in love with his "sister," Hendrix. In the meantime, everyone in the family is trying to get a piece of the inheritance and Lund must work overtime in order to protect Hendrix from their greedy clutches. The manic pace continues full steam ahead until it nearly

hits the breaking point. Hendrix is saved when her real brother resurfaces with a Hawaiian wife and a brood of kiddies. Hendrix gets her rightful inheritance and is allowed to go public with her love for Lund. A crisp script with a barrage of snappy dialog keeps this one moving along with nary a

dull moment. Director Haydn--a British comedian known for his neurotic character roles--successfully displayed his talents in this, his first directorial assignment, as well as making a small appearance under the pseudonym of Richard Rancyd.
