Geraldine (Dixie Lee) & Carol (Helen Flint) are 2 ladies a tad too rich for their owbn good, so they don't have to spend their days working for a living but drink champagne & eat caviar. So it hits them like a sledgehammer when they learn they have been cheated out of all their (father's) money by a phony investor, & now don't even have enough to pay their servants' salaries.

So Geraldine, the earthier of the duo, asks the servants, chauffeur Williams (Robert Armstrong) & maid 'Annette (Nydia Westman) if they, instead of the salary they can't pay anyways, move in with them as tenants - to which both agree.

But that doesn't improve the girls' situation much, since they still have no money & the servants now refuse to serve them (since they are only tenants now) & instead insist that the girls help with the houseword. Geraldine tries to get work at a burlesque, based upon a mildly risqué dance she once did for charity, but she soon has to learn there's little chance for her if she refuses to do a proper striptease ... which she refuses.

Only Williams seems to be successful, when he rents out the girls' Rolls Royce & himself as a driver to "Pancake" Annie Jones (Cecil Cunningham), a rich Nevada woman, & her son Phineas (Harold Waldridge), who have come to see Manhattan & make the acquaintance of local society. Annie even promises Williams 1000 Dollars should he be able to arrange a meeting ... & soon he hooks them up with the girls - but from here on it goes wrong: Maid Annette refuses to play her part as maid in this little almost-charade, so Geraldine plays the maid while Annette, rather unannounced, assumes the role of Carol's society friend from Europe ... & soon enough has caught the eye (& heart) of Phineas. & soon enough too, she has married him & is off with him to Nevada.

Then Carol marries her longtime boyfriend (Franklin Pangborn), & is gone as well, which leaves only Geraldine & Williams. & Williams has not only lost his best customer, Mrs Jones, but also gets into a fight that puts him out of action for a while.

Now it's up to Geraldine to make a living for herself & Williams (whom she has somehow fallen for), & out of other ideas, she does join the burlesque after all to do a proper striptease - but the club is raided on her first night & she is arrested.

Fortunately, Carol's huisband agrees to bail her out, but this affair has upset Williams, & he decides to take an offer from Mrs jones & go to Nevada ... until she confesses she loves him & asks him to take her with im.


It's not a good comedy or a great film, but it's lively & lighthearted enough to provide circa 75 minutes of good entertainment, thanks also to solid performances throughout. Despite the many allusions to striptease though, we (of course, considering the time the film was made) don't get to see any naked flesh.
