Pretty Good After A Slow Start
This short comedy is pretty good once it gets going. Leon Errol makes good use of his dual role, and the supporting cast also help to make the idea work. Leon reprises his Lord Epping character, who gets into a tangle-up with Leon's own family and associates. The situation lends itself to some good material, and most of it comes off well enough. Dorothy Granger always works well as a complement to Errol's scheming husband characters, and in this one Claire Carleton is also amusing as a dancer who fits in with Leon's plans.

The story is rather slow at the beginning, taking rather a lot of time to introduce Lord Epping and to set up Leon's predicament, without a lot of particularly funny material. The last part is much more entertaining, as Errol and the rest of the cast attend an amusing dinner party. They use the situation well, without trying to push it too far. Overall, it's a decent short comedy, despite the slow beginning.
