Bashful lawyer Henry cannot attend his fiancée's birthday party because of a business engagement. However, farcical circumstances find him mistaken for the dance partner of a professional lady hired to entertain a country house party at which his fiancée is a guest.


Critical reception

The New York Times wrote, "Its chief distinction is really the characterization offered by Mr. Ralph Lynn in the role of a diffident lawyer...Miss Winifred Shotter, who is a favorite member of the "Aldwych school," is effective as Pauline, the danseuse, as she plays up well to Mr. Lynn, who, with an experience gained in Hollywood, has won what some judges hold to be the foremost place among English screen comedians. Here and there comparisons with the much more elaborate settings which Hollywood would have devised for a picture of this kind are unavoidable, but on the whole the genuine atmosphere and environment of an English country house has been retained; and there is compensation in verisimilitude for what the eye loses in the way of spectacle...Though there is no gainsaying the fact that this picture is full of robustious humor, is pat in dialogue and quick in action for an English offering, there are still times when the onlooker is inclined to suggest "getting on with it";[2] while more recently, Allmovie wrote, " It's Ralph Lynn's show all the way, and he makes the most of every comic opportunity. It would be nice to say that the film's production values were on the same level as the star's performance -- nice, and untrue."[3]
