An early talkie for director La Cava (MY MAN GODFREY) offers only partial dialog, but is filled with subtle visual touches and characterizations found throughout the director's light comedies. The story revolves around the simple love affair between Griffith and lady's man Withers, which

begins in a harmless enough fashion, then develops as the two temporarily drift apart. Griffith resorts to the tactics she originally felt beneath her, the use of cunning techniques to bag a man, to win Withers back and get him to the altar. Except for her voice, Griffiths proves to have talent

for light comedy of this type, with Withers offering a manly stereotype to balance Griffith's wiles.
