Movie Info

The indomitable May Robson is firmly in the driver's seat of this Runyonesque comedy-drama. While riding through Central Park, peppery millionairess Mary Jane Baxter (Robson) is thrown from her carriage and rescued by three scruffy orphans (Frankie Darro, Billy Benedict, Billy Burrud). The kids take her to the home of their guardian, Italian barber Tony (Henry Armetta), with the intention of letting her recuperate. Upon awakening, Mary Jane assumes that she's been kidnapped and imperiously demands to be released. Eventually won over by her lovable young "abductors," Mary Jane is able to rise to the occasion magnificently when a real kidnapping occurs. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Three Kids and a Queen

All Critics (3)

While the first few sequences, devoted to character identification, are rather slow, the remainder of the picture moves with surprising speed, in which action and dialogue are nicely balanced.

Armetta in his usual role of the harassed barber spreads himself all over this one and gets a lot of laughs. May Robson, when not reading aloud out of newspapers, is effective as the richest lady in the world...

It all works out nicely.
