A charming, airy comedy with Colman being as delightful in 1930 as he was so many years later in CHAMPAGNE FOR CAESAR. Colman is a playboy who spends most of his time in the pursuit of pleasure and women. The dialog is breezy as Colman returns to London after having auctioned off the house

and furnishings that daddy, Frederick Kerr, provided for him in Africa. Colman used the money to support his high style of living and comes back to England with barely enough left to buy a terrier in a local pet shop. The dog is very funny and mimes his canine advice about which girls Colman

should and shouldn't take up with. Colman borrows some further poundage from dear old dad, embraces former girl friend Loy, and is immediately rocked back on his heels by the sight of gorgeous Young, a socialite with impeccable credentials and a boy friend, Cavanagh, who is a Grand Duke. Young

suspects that Colman is a rakehell and ne'er-do-well and when she offers him some money, he accepts it. She thinks he is a professional gigolo, but he has really taken the cash to give to Cavanagh, who is all title but no money. Once that's straightened out, Young falls for Colman and the couple

unite for a happy ending. Loretta Young was but seventeen when this picture was made, and legend has it that she was madly in love with the suave Colman.
