Description by OLDIES.com:

Charlie Ruggles stars as Oswald Groggs, butler to wealthy businessman Chester Hamilton (Sidney Blackmer) in this breezy, sophisticated comedy of love and marriage-for-money from 1933!

Man and master share the same unfortunate fate: steep alimony payments! When the understanding Hamilton advances the money Groggs needs to pay off his shrewish ex-wife, Groggs uses half of the money to finance a long overdue vacation at the seashore. At the beach, the butler is mistaken for "Sir Oswald Groggs," the wealthy bachelor playboy, and every gold-digging huntress is soon after him! Fanny Malone (Verree Teasdale), catches "Sir Oswald" in her net, and after soaking him for all of his money, leaves him heart-broken. Returning home poorer and none-the-wiser, Groggs discovers that Fanny is set to marry his boss, Hamilton! The men decide to continue Grogg's impersonation of the jilted "Sir Oswald" in order to catch the duplicitous Fanny, before the judge can tie the knot and Hamilton's bank account is drained!

Sharp-eyed viewers will note an uncredited comic turn by Hattie McDaniel (Gone With The Wind) as Edna the maid, Humphrey Bogart's third wife Mayo Methot (as Hamilton's first wife) and Edward Van Sloan (Dracula's nemesis Van Helsing) as the Judge.

Product Description:

When husbands refuse to pay alimony they land in jail... or with goldigging women who want to empty out their thin pockets.

Rating 4.0 A strange mix, but fun! Movie Lover: from Walnut Creek, CA US -- January, 24, 2009

Very funny pre-Code comedy, if highly misogynistic with streaks of racism. Charlie Ruggles is a gas. Features the rather hot "bad" Verree Teasdale. Some intriguing set decoration (by Edward C. Jewell).
