Hale is an over-protective mother who leaves Massachusetts for Paris to prevent her son Robards from tying the knot with chorus girl Bordoni. The picture tries to use color sequences (39 minutes worth) to keep the audience awake, but for some reason left out the major selling point--the

film was based on a play for which Cole Porter wrote the tunes, but they were omitted from the screen version. The new tunes by Al Bryan and Ed Ward include, "Crystal Girl," "Miss Wonderful," "Paris," "I Wonder What Is Really on His Mind," "I'm a Little Negative," "Somebody Mighty Like You," "My

Lover (Master of My Heart)." This film marks both Bordoni's and Buchanan's talkie debut. Bordoni reprised her stage role in this movie.
