Fine little comedy finds Arliss and Gerrard in France, under arrest for a minor offense. Arliss gives his name as Rothschild and the cops check with the famous family to see if he's really one of theirs. He isn't, of course, but they give him 2,000 francs from their charity fund anyway.

Arliss deposits it and the banker, thinking that his customer is a member of the wealthy clan, suggests that his new client draw against that account. It seems the bank is on the verge of going broke and the banker sees this as a new lease on life. Gerrard is made a secretary and accidentally

saves the fortune of a young girl from a crooked dealer. All is discovered but forgiven by film's end. Though the situation is contrived, the script is quite good and completely believable. It's all helped by a terrific ensemble effort from the cast, handled with grace and style. It's a smoothly

directed, witty little piece.
