Description by OLDIES.com:

Manufacturing executive Alfred Borden (Walter Connolly) walks through his luxurious Manhattan home, singing Happy Birthday to himself. His family - from inattentive wife (Verree Teasdale) to insouciant son (Tim Holt) to a giddy daughter (Kathryn Adams) drawn to the family's Marxist-leaning chauffeur - all ignore the day. Then, Alfred brings home a jobless, level-headed working girl (Ginger Rogers) he meets in Central Park, provides her lodging and the Bordens fall under the influence of this savvy 5th Ave. Girl. Director Gregory La Cava (My Man Godfrey, Stage Door) amiably skewers the rich again with this witty, star-filled romp that makes 5th Avenue the place for classic screwball fun.

Product Description:

A wealthy older man and a poor young woman each get a chance to see how the other half lives in this comedy. Alfred Borden (Walter Connolly) is a millionaire who feels neglected by his family. His wife Martha (Verree Teasdale), daughter Katherine (Kathryn Adams), and son Tim (Tim Holt) usually ignore him, and all three manage to forget his birthday completely. Depressed and alone, Alfred bumps into Mary Grey (Ginger Rogers), a young woman who is out of work but is still happy with her lot in life. Alfred invites her to go to a night spot with him, and he soon hatches a scheme by which Mary will move into the guest room of the Borden Mansion and pose as a gold digger who is toying with Alfred's affections to get at his money. Mary's presence has a sudden impact on the family; Martha realizes that she needs to pay more attention to her husband, Katherine falls in love with the family's leftist chauffeur (James Ellison), and Tim starts taking an interest in the family business, and in Mary.
