| Laboured unfunny quota quickie
This is based on a stage play.Jerry Verno is newly married but having a flirtation with Renee Gadd.His mother in law suspects Verno.They are persuaded to go down to a cottage in the country where Verno poses as his own double.Typical quota quickie with the cameraman attempting to get as many actors as possible in shot and panning to the actor with the next line.There are some nice art deco sets to divert attention.Once the plot moves to the cottage it is all downhill.They must have been easily pleased in 1932.
