Cary Grant stars in this pleasant and oddly timely film about a wealthy British playboy who’s not feeling well. When he goes to the doctor, he’s told that he has affluenza, and that the cure for it is to walk away from his pampered life and live in the shoes of the common man for a year. There are no surprises here, but the film is well-made and entertaining, and it shares some similarities with the same year’s MY MAN GODFREY.

This DVD is packaged in a slim plastic case.
Cary Grant plays Ernest Bliss, a bored heir to a rich family, who comes to equate his boredom with the fact that he has never had to really work for anything in his life. Seeking help, Bliss consults a doctor who prescribes for him the task of earning his keep for one year, without being able to draw upon the family fortune. A bet of fifty thousand pounds acts as security to keep Bliss on the prescribed path.
Of course, this being a Cary Grant film, love intervenes in the form of Frances Clayton (played by Mary Brian), a less than well-off woman trapped in an unhappy marriage. Will Bliss tap into his family wealth to save his new lady friend, and thus lose the bet? The answer to this question takes the form of an amazing adventure that fans of both romance and classic films are sure to enjoy."
