British butler Charles Laughton, gambled away by his aristocrat owner to a nouveau riche American hick, suddenly finds himself in the backwater of Red Gap, Washington, reckoning with the novel concept of freedom. One of the most charming, and patriotic, of all American comedies of the 1930s, with notions about adopted American identity and the immigrant dream as imperative as always.
