Stylish Barnes is a top crime reporter for a Fleet Street daily. He goes to Paris on the trail of a banknote forger, accompanied by his wife, ladylike Hobson. Though he thinks she's a nuisance and the two always fight, Hobson proves to be adept at solving the crime herself. This

well-done, clever comedy was a follow-up film to THIS MAN IS NEWS, a British attempt to duplicate America's THIN MAN. However, this second film proved to be the last effort along those lines. Hobson is excellent in her role, though Barnes isn't quite the character he tries to be. Sim provides good

comic support in another one of his eccentric specialties. Director MacDonald wins huzzahs for another entertaining middle-bracket crime story.
