1941 USA / 89 mins / Cert: U

Director: Preston Sturges

Father and daughter con-artists meet the heir to a brewery fortune and attempt to bamboozle him at a cruise ship card table. Their plan is quickly abandoned when the daughter falls in love with the prey. Sturges here cleverly balances broad slapstick and sophisticated sexiness with perfect grace.
