Robert Young Remains Calm
15 July 2011 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Advertising executive Robert Young (as Preston "Pat" Patton) is fired from his job for kissing boss' daughter Madge Evans (as Mary Elizabeth Allenby). Taking a cue from his frequently uttered "Calm Yourself" motto, Mr. Young starts his own business, called "Confidential Services, Inc." Young explains, "Our large and versatile staff will pawn your jewels, send your strategic telegrams, hold your hand during operation, or do almost anything you ask." Just say "Calm Yourself" and allow Young to handle it, for a fee.

Young gets off on the wrong track by delivering the wrong drunk to an overweight wife's bed. Next, he is hired to keep beautiful Madge Evans (as Rosalind) away from her father's new wife because rich old papa Ralph Morgan (as Kenneth S. Rockwell) has been passing himself off as a younger man. So, Young hires Ms. Evans as his secretary, allowing her to become involved in some comic misadventures. They also become romantic. A baby and a dog are added to the confusion. Everybody tries to remain calm.

**** Calm Yourself (6/28/35) George B. Seitz ~ Robert Young, Madge Evans, Betty Furness, Ralph Morgan
