| Unassuming comedy features nutty cast and clever plot
Chick Chandler wins an award from his employer and is given a choice —$1000 cash or 11 shares in the company. To the chagrin of his employer, Mr. Penfield himself of Penfield Peerless Laundry, Chandler takes the money and runs.

Old Mr. Penfield is already upset with daughter Evalyn Knapp—despite his forbidding it, she has informed him that she is planning to marry shady Bradley Page (who is, in fact, a con man after Penfield's money).

Chandler and Knapp inevitably meet up in one of those cute situations—she thinks he's rich and he thinks she's broke, when in fact it's just the other way around.

Appearances can be deceiving in this charming B picture that features a neat little plot and a great cast of character actors.

Richard Carle is blustery and eccentric as Mr. Penfield, the laundry king. Burton Churchill is hilarious as another fast talking schemer who rolls onto the scene looking for some dishonest winnings. Knapp and Chandler are bright and attractive as the two leads.

So it's a little slow at times—it is definitely a cheapie. But what a fun plot! Enthusiastic performances all around and some clever dialog really make this one a lot of fun.
