Plot & Details
Don Ameche stars in this semi-screwball comedy as a handsome, eccentric 19th century inventor. Myrna Loy is his golddigging fiancee, who foolishly believes Ameche will make her financially secure. Love triumphs over greed, and Loy happily marries the inventor, who'll offer little in the way of creature comforts, but whose sincerity and dedication to his work is worth more to her than all the money in the bank. Why don't we ever meet people like this in real life? Released in Great Britain as A Genius in the Family.
