W.C. Fields and Alison Skipworth are perfectly paired as con-artists who come to the aid of their niece when a crooked lawyer tries to steal her inheritance. Whether trying to fix a ferry race or attempting to mix paint, Fields is in hilarious form in this underrated gem, which introduced the Great Man to pint-sized nemesis Baby LeRoy.
