Rialto Pictures

This romantic comedy-melodrama revolves around a millionaire's decision to teach his frivolous "flapper" daughter (played by the great Betty Balfour) a lesson by feigning bankruptcy. Built around Balfour's effervescent energy, this early example of Hitchcock's long-term fascination with the foibles of the filthy rich features some great experimental touches, including an opening shot filmed through a raised champagne glass.
