Thanks to such films as Three Godfathers and The Pearl, Mexican actor Pedro Armendariz enjoyed a substantial American following. Thus, Armendariz' Madcap of the House did good business when it was released North of the Border. For most of the film, Armendariz takes a back seat to newcomer Susana Freyre, cast as a wide-eyed convent novice. The girl's unorthodox approach to her calling sparks all sorts of nonsensical situations. Comedy gives way to poignancy in the final scenes, wherein Our Heroine must choose between her own impulses and the word of God.
