Basically a vehicle to promote popular British entertainer Fields in the States, given a story and comic routines tailored to American tastes. Fields plays an entertainer who has had it with the antics of her crooked manager. She walks out on him and takes the rest of the troupe along.
They wind up on her uncle's farm, where popular musician Livesy takes a liking to them and lends them a helping hand. This paves the way for a long engagement at a Brighton theater. Though much of the humor is slapstick, some fairly clever routines using the farm background are created for maximum
effect. Maguire, as the dancing ingenue, was the only American player in the supporting cast. Skippy the dog became well known as "Asta" in the "Thin Man" series. Songs include "Swing Your Way to Happiness," "The Holy City" (both sung by Fields) "Giddy Up," "Mrs. Binns' Twins."
