Whenever someone uses the title Bedtime Story, chances are the film isn't as naughty as the title implies. This 1938 British film is a sedate domestic comedy-drama involving grown-up orphan Lesley Wareing. Tired of living with her domineering aunt, Wareing boards a boat bound for New York, posing as an American heiress when she finds herself short of fare money. Her scheme goes bust, and soon she's taking refuge at her uncle's farm. But that turns out to be just swell, inasmuch as Wareing falls in love with the castoff fiance (Jack Livesey) of her cousin. A Walter Ellis stage play was the source of this minor but entertaining effort.
