A millionaire wins a bet when he rises from a chauffeur's position to the executive board room without using his wealth. Though not particularly amazing, lightweight English comedy has Grant working hard to charm over and above the demands of the dated formula, a performance he undertook during a vacation from Hollywood. Adapted from a novel by E. Phillips Oppenheim. 63m/C VHS, DVD . Cary Grant, Mary Brian, Henry Kendall, Leon M. Lion, Ralph Richardson; D: Alfred Zeisler.
