| simple little story.... ho hum
Erik Rhodes and Allen Jenkins carry this one from 1935, in Rhodes' fourth credited role. Rhodes had just had a large role with Astaire and Rogers in "Gay Divorcée" the year before, and was an expert at euro accents. Leopold is happy to let people think he cooked the meal eaten by Regan (William Gargan), and it even gets him a job offer. Early-ish role for Allen Jenkins, mister nasal voice and slightly dim-guy mug from SO many films of the 1930s and 1940s. Directed by William McGann, who had also directed a TON of stuff in the 1930s and 1940s. Shown on Turner Classics occasionally, but really not very captivating. much ado about nothing. kind of meanders along, but never really gets us interested. They do end up at the Ritz, (from the title...) but we have already fallen asleep. It's only a shortie from Warner Brothers. Skip it. Script needed some pepping up or something.
