Three of a KindAs a preacher's kid, I learned the words while I was quite young: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." A few years ago I listened to the Rhonda Byrne dvd that proclaimed a new and exciting 'secret' - the law of attraction. You can attract to yourself whatever you want, if you will first gratefully give the same to others. If you want to be respected, respect everyone else. If you want everyone to love you, love them. As a youngster I heard the same thing on the Oral Roberts television shows. He taught that if you want to reap a harvest of money, you needed only 'plant' small amounts of money by giving to someone in need. By gratefully giving a little bit of money or love, or respect, or understanding, or a friendly smile, or anything else that you have in abundance to someone that needs it, it will grow and later return to you multiplied many times over. The concept has been around for thousands of years, but very few of us really work daily at it. But whether we work at it or not . . . just like gravity . . . it works perfectly. If I coast along and don't constantly work at projecting love . . . instead I give that inconsiderate person my middle finger and a moment of mental rage, which will also grow into a harvest of the same coming back at me. You would not believe the amazing things that have come to me since I started giving away free movies. My harvest is bountiful, allowing me to give more and more each month. I've made wonderful new friends, and I'm joyfully living my passion. What an amazing law it is. You harvest what you plant - and you can't fool the law. It just works. In this movie full of con men and fools, everyone is trying to harvest something big, but they are planting the wrong actions. The con men try to deceive in order to get riches, but exactly what they plant is exactly what they harvest. The law works in this movie. The wealthy businessman / good natured fool walks right into the con men's schemes . . . and walks back out again not even knowing where he's been. And his trusting young daughter that all of the con men want to hustle . . . she gives out her love and affection and trust to them all, and winds up with the right man loving her back in the best way. The law works!

Have you ever heard the saying about angels watching over children and fools? This screwball comedy pits three con-men against each other, and a beautiful blonde who isn't dumb. Now, her father is plenty dumb - he is the blonde dummy . . . even thought he's mostly bald. He is the 'fool' that stumbles through this plot without a clue, but like all good comedies, everything turns out well in the end. Babs Penfield is the daughter of wealthy laundry man F. Thorndyke Penfield. This guy wears black tie evening clothes to the office, and is as goofy as anyone you ever met. His young daughter is so trusting of men that she seems to attract every con man in the area. Things get really tangled as everyone thinks everyone else is someone else. Does that make sense? Well, you'll just need to watch it yourself to really understand how masterfully the authors twisted each character around the others. I've seen a lot of screwy plots where misunderstandings create havoc, but none so amazingly written as this one. Pop your white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter and enjoy a wonderful hour of the funniest mix-ups you've ever seen on the big screen.
