Errol Flynn has a crack at contemporary comedy in this tale of a rich, upper-class young man who has been raised as an over-protected hothouse specimen and kept from any contact with the dangers of reality. Things change when an attractive young woman (Joan Blondell), crashes her car through his fence and brings love into his life. Flynn, not quite in control of comedy technique, nonetheless is a perfect model of looks and charm and the film, directed by Flynn regular Michael Curtiz and featuring stalwarts Hugh Herbert, May Robson, and Edward Everett Horton, is a pleasing, if not too believable, romantic comedy romp.
