A delightful, very entertaining comedy [from the novel by Thorne Smith] built around several of the characters who appear in Topper, of which this is a sequel.

Roland Young, as Topper, is in court trying to offer a dubious defense in a divorce case Billie Burke has brought against him because he had a woman in his room. Thereafter, with the action shifting to Europe, where Burke has gone to get her divorce, the living spirit of Constance Bennett and her dog Skippy remain to keep him company. Bennett is still trying to reconcile Young and Burke.

Norman McLeod’s adroit direction throughout keeps the film at a nice pace. Pantomime takes care of much of the footage, with just the proper but pungent amount of dialog to suit for story-telling and comedy purposes.
