| Mascot's final picture.
Although made by tiny Mascot Films, this picture was actually released by Republic, as Mascot had just recently gone belly up. Is this final Mascot film worth your time?

Kate (Louise Fazenda) and Maude (Maude Eburne) are old friends and partners in a greasy spoon. However, when Maude is offered a ton of money for some property she owns, she goes from working class stiff to a member of society. She is concerned with putting on airs and insists her daughter become fancy as well. Unfortunately, this means that Kate is made to feel unwelcome by her old friend, as she is not as fancy as Maude.

Angered by the snub by Maude, Kate and her son come up with an idea to make a fortune. It works...and now SHE is trying to put on airs and be a social butterfly like Maude. But instead of bringing the old friends together, the money and social events just drive them further apart...as well as their children. What's next for this pair of grouches?

So is this comedy any good? Generally, yes. It's an amiable little comedy...but occasionally it also is a bit shrill and the women are easy to dislike. Not bad at all...but not especially distinguished either.
