An early screwball comedy, the plot revolves around a Soap Manufacturing Mogul’s attempt to get his idle-rich son to make something of himself. This involves a Countess who speaks only French (or does she?); the son’s sweetheart (or is she?); a hard-sell theatrical press-agent (well, he definitely is!), and a new soap company set up by the son in competition with his father.
“No. 13 Soap … It’s Unlucky for Dirt.”
Roi Cooper Megrue (1882 – 1927) and Walter Hackett (1876 – 1944)
