The young couple is obviously deeply in love, and Irma will make a perfect daughter-in-law. The harmony extends to the kitchen, where the cook Lena (Zasu Pitts) has enough money saved to marry her sweetheart, also in Josef's employ. Then comes a storm and with it a gypsy caravan. Sultry young Nubi (Myrna Loy) begs for and is granted sanctuary in the house. But she excuses herself from most work to concentrate on her own agenda: seducing all the men in the Lajos household. The evil intruder has soon ruined three loving relationships"--Reviewed by Glenn Erickson
