Loretta Young is hired as a servant. The son of the family for whom she works is Robert Taylor. Of course, they fall in love. But the scenes in which the two kiss do not support this idea: They hug and nuzzle each other's necks. Possibly there is one brief kiss on the mouth. But these two give no sense of being more than cousins -- and cousins who don't like each other much, at that.

The movie, however, is entertaining. It has a superb supporting cast. Basil Rathbone is deliciously evil as the tyrannical butler who has design on Young. Patsy Kelly is fun (albeit rather bland, toned-down fun) as another servant who befriends her.

The title is a puzzle. I may have missed something. But whose number is private?
