The beauty of this slight little film is the interplay between Basil Rathbone and Dorothy Mackaill. Until he arrives at her doorstep, the film is rather banal, but once they begin to interact, the chemistry is palpable. As always, Dorothy Mackaill is wonderful in the film; the addition of Rathbone gives her someone whom she can really bounce off. Added to that, he is quite dashing and amusing as the bemused fiance of a woman he's never actually met.
Pre-code.com points out a scene in which a watch gets dropped down Celia's front (with the very interested Colonel Smith watching her retrieve it. You can see a photo of the scene on his website, above). There is also the character of Raleigh Raleigh - though not stated outright, the film hints that he is gay. Aunt Ida's drunk scene also might give later censors a bit of a shudder (this is, after all, still the era of prohibition. Sure, it's set in England, but when would that stop a censor?) But by and large, this is a subdued precode film, which just skirts around the borders of naughtiness.
In their review of the film, the New York Times also commented on the slight nature of the film. However, they too agreed that the chemistry between Rathbone and Mackaill was outstanding. Though not an earthshattering film, it's a pleasant enough way to spend 72 minutes, if only to see Dorothy Mackaill with an actor who is her equal.
