Review by Bruce Eder

For those who only know Erle C. Kenton for his later films, such as Pardon My Sarong and House of Frankenstein, this movie will be a delightful surprise, showing off Kenton's way with a property that is almost lighter than air. Virginia Lee Corbin is a traffic-stopping figure in her flapper outfit and not far behind as a performer, either, and Kenton keeps it all moving at a pace that holds up eight decades later. This material is obviously closer to the place where he started, with Mack Sennett, but you can see the way in which he likes to move a story forward, and this was essentially the same approach that he took to his horror movies of the '30s and '40s.
