Once I had got over the 'Ruggles' confusion, one a character, the other an actor, I enjoyed this as one of the very funniest thirties comedies. I actually laughed out loud at Laughton as a drunken Ruggles. Charlie Ruggles and Mary Boland are brilliant as the very American couple who win the very English butler Charles Laughton in a card game with an English Lord (Roland Young). it succeeds in being very pro-american without being anti-british, which is quite an achievement! Leila Hyams in her duet with (Lord) Roland Young is sensational!
