"Three of a Kind" is a cute comedy...but it's also one you need to pay attention to as it runs. So, don't do housework or your taxes while you're watching this one!
Barbara Penfield (Evelyn Knapp) is a spoiled and headstrong rich girl. Her father owns a cleaning company and is worth a fortune. However, Barbara is also a bit dim. Everyone around her knows that Barbara's boyfriend is a cheap swindler....yet she insists on helping him with his latest get rich venture. She tries to get her father to invest in the scheme...but he absolutely refuses. So, she plans on selling her lovely new car and giving the money to her worthless boyfriend. However, her plan starts running amok while she's trying to sell her car. You see, a con-man (Berton Churchill) sells the car while she's test driving a replacement car....and the guy who buys it is a nice guy who just insulted Mr. Penfield and quit his job working for him. Does it get more complicated....you betcha...a lot more complicated. There's also the Kentucky Colonel and his daughter and Mr. Penfield shows up and then there are the cases of mistaken identity. I am sure you kinda get the idea.
The film is quite clever and while I would never call it a laugh out loud sort of picture, it is very good and well worth seeing.
