This madcap tale of hypochondria and bootlegging is the work of the then up-and-coming director Gregory La Cava, who was – naturally – a former cartoonist. When his employer tanked, he started making features replete with comic strip style stories. This one stars Bebe Daniels as a wildly over-protected child – on the cusp of adulthood, followed by a flock of nurses supplied at the request of her eccentric, late father. But as her 21st birthday nears, a cigar-chomping Texan uncle enters the picture and disrupts the germ-fearing charades. Our leading lady flees her home to a sanitarium she was set to inherit – but this place has its own band of loons – rum runners who have set up (a thinly veiled) bootlegging camp. Featuring live accompaniment by Cliff Retallick
