| Jobyna Howland Steals the Show
Creaky Broadway musical given a so-so treatment in Hollywood with Nancy Carroll starring as a woman who rents her house and masquerades as the cook. No real plot but some nice performances and one great song: Sing You Sinners.

This is typical of early Hollywood musicals that were brought from Hollywood. There's nothing cinematic about it; it's basically the stage show filmed. So it makes for a stiff production with nothing redone for film.

Jobyna Howland plays the imperious woman who rents the house; Lillian Roth is her daughter who falls for Skeets Gallagher who is posing as a butler. Stanley Smith plays the "hero," and Mitzi Green, Harry Green, and Charles Sellon co-star. But it's Howland who steals the show with her patented physical comedy and wild hair. Howland is best remembered as the "margaret Dumont" of several Wheeler and Woolsey comedies.
