Plot

Uncle Claude comes to the Ardmore Beach Hotel to see Tommy and his wife. At the hotel, with his two granddaughters Ruth and Sally, Uncle Claude meets a wise-talking employee named Letty, which causes him to leave the hotel. When he finds Tommy, he mistakes Grace for his wife and likes her and the way she keeps a clean house. To get a big check from Uncle Claude and to see how life is with the other, the two couples switch spouses for a week.

  • Release and reception

    The film premiered on October 16, 1929. Film historian Scott Eyman, in his book The Speed of Sound, wrote that the film was one of a wave of more than 70 musicals inundating American movie theaters in 1930. Like most of its genre at the time, it was financially disappointing and "barely broke even", despite the "glorious rowdy Charlotte Greenwood", Eyman said.
