During the brief "movie star" phase of his career, Broadway comedian Victor Moore appeared in several inconsequential comedies along the lines of Snobs. In this one, Moore plays Charles Disney, a milkman who inherits $20 million and a British peerage. Suddenly the most eligible bachelor in High Society, Disney is pursued by scores of twittering young females. It doesn't take long before Disney realizes that his newfound admirers are more interested in his money than in him, and in the film's dramatic highlight, he tells off an assemblage of aristocrats at a fancy-dress ball. Realizing that he was happier when his bank account was thinner, Disney returns to his milkman job -- and to the sweetheart he left behind during his tenure as a millionaire. Snobs was scripted (but not directed) by Cecil B. DeMille from a play by George Bronston Howard.
