CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Mervyn LeRoy. Joe E. Brown, Bernice Claire, Jack Whiting, Frank McHugh, Laura Lee, Rita Flynn, Edwin Maxwell. Big-mouth bond clerk Brown and pal Whiting pose as millionaires at a fancy hotel to impress a couple of rich cuties. One of Brown's best vehicles, a funny musical comedy (from the show by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, and Guy Bolton), with zippy production numbers, some racy gags, and a wild speedboat race finale.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William A. Seiter. Joe E. Brown, Lawrence Gray, Laura Lee, Walter Pidgeon, Frank McHugh, Ona Munson, May Boley, Johnny Arthur. Brown mugs shamelessly as a down-and-out reporter mistaken for a famous aviator at a beach resort, resulting in typical romantic mix-ups and a slapstick airplane race. Stagy, warmed-over rehash of elements from Brown's superior TOP SPEED.

D: Buster Keaton. Buster Keaton, T. Roy Barnes, Snitz Edwards, Ruth Dwyer, Frankie Raymond, Jules Cowles. Buster will inherit a fortune if he's married by 7:00 that evening; a miscommunication with his girlfriend leads to his pursuit by thousands of would-be brides. The highlight: a furious chase down a hill in which Buster dodges dozens of oversized boulders! One of Keaton's silent gems. That's young Jean Arthur as a switchboard operator who turns down Buster's marriage proposal. Remade as THE BACHELOR (1999).
