| Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly paired in a Hal Roach comedy short...
This is one of the better pairings of Todd and Kelly, although the script has them both straining to be funny under some barely believable comedy material. This time THELMA TODD lets PATSY KELLY think she's achieved wealth through her poetry, when all the time she's really the maid for a wealthy couple who are out for the evening.

When Kelly invites two of her obnoxious friends over to celebrate her friend's success, Todd goes along reluctantly with the ruse until it's almost time for the real owners of the swanky penthouse suite to return. The rest of the story has them running in and out of doors to hide from the wealthy couple who have no idea what's been going on.

It works up a few good laughs, particularly the "water bombs" thrown from the terrace onto unsuspecting passersby--but it's all very silly and a bit overdone. I'm not a fan of Patsy Kelly's comedy approach at playing a brass tomboy, but Todd handles her material with skill and good comic timing.

Very dated stuff, but occasionally good for a laugh.
