~ This great teaming of Davis & Cagney (the two biggest stars of Warner Bros) is a funny gem and they shine together on screen. This is actually the 2nd film that two made the first being, "Jimmy The Gent" (1934).
Steve Collins is aware of Joan's status in society and how this wedding would be an issue with her family. Prior to taking off with the young couple, Steve makes a phone call to Joan's father Lucius (Eugene Pallette) who wants to prevent this wedding at all costs. Steve makes an offer that Lucius can not refuse which is for a fee he will ensure the marriage will not happen. Upon returning Joan to her father he would be paid a handsome sum which would free him of debt. The offer is agreed upon.
