Additional Info

Produced in New York by Alfred de Liagre, Jr. Essie Stuyvesant's valiant effort to keep the wolf from the door of her elegant house in New York plunges her into a day of action that would send a weaker woman into collapse.

How the tangled problems are cleared up is told in three acts of hilarious farce-comedy interwoven with touching undertones of forthright and human sentiment.
