Description

Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn both give sparking and witty performances in this entertaining comedy adventure. Sylvia Scarlett (Hepburn), and her crooked father are escaping France, one step ahead of the police. To avoid detection Sylvia cuts her hair and dons boy's clothing. They bump into Monkley (Grant), a shady character who suggests they all work together as confidence tricksters. For a while they survive on their wits but eventually run out of cash. Monkley remembers his friend Maudie, an old friend who is a maid in a rich London household, but it soon becomes clear that their troubles are only just beginning....
