Directed by Gregory La Cava
Cast Bebe Daniels .... Barbara Manning Richard Arlen .... Her Problem William Powell .... Her Nemesis Melbourne MacDowell .... Her Uncle Wilberforce George Irving .... Her Uncle Edgar Charles Sellon .... Her Sanitarium's Caretaker Heinie Conklin .... Her Patient
A rich but hypochondriacal heiress tries to hide from her uncle in a sanitarium. What she doesn’t know is that it is a front for bootleggers, and a hideout for criminals on the run from the law.
Rather like Colleen Moore, Bebe Daniels’ approach to comedy was based on situation, whimsy, and understated wit expressed in the intertitles; there is little in the way of slapstick in her work.
63 minutes - Presented with two music scores
