| A very enjoyable comedy of deception with George Arliss in top form.
George Arliss does it again! I recently saw "The Working Man (1933)" and loved it because the audience is let in on a deception that few of the cast know about. This is another film in the same vein. It makes for some very funny situations. The funniest scene happens when Arliss' wife, Florence Arliss (his real-life wife too), also comes around for some gas, but you have to see the film for that. By the way, the remake "That Way with Women (1947)" is pretty much a turkey; Arliss makes all the difference.

The supporting cast includes James Cagney (a standout) in his fourth film as an insurance agent convincing Arliss to get some work because retired men are poor life insurance risks. Also good is Noah Beery as the owner of the gas station.
