Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Girl in Possession was one of the best of a cluster of entertaining "quota quickies" produced in the early 1930s by Warner Bros.' British arm, Teddington Studios. Hollywood's Laura La Plante plays Eve Chandler, a young girl who falls heir to a vast estate -- or so she thinks. Our heroine is forced to contend with a gang of musical-comedy crooks before she can find happiness in the arms of nominal hero Sir Mortimer (Henry Kendall), who, like everyone else in the picture, isn't exactly what he seems to be. The top-heavy cast of supporting players includes Charlotte Parry as the heroine's wisecracking pal, Claude Hulbert as a silly-ass nobleman, Bernard Nedell as a society criminal, and Monty Banks (the director) in a comedy bit. Also showing up unbilled in The Girl in Possession is perennial Laurel & Hardy foil James Finlayson.
