Name of 1930s romantic comedy


Recommended Posts

I am looking for the name of a 1930's romantic comedy in the madcap or screw-ball genre, very similar in the feel and viewpoint to - BUT IT'S NOT- "You Can't Take It With You (1938)." The plot revolves around a wiley, free-spirited farmer who likes to use the barter system instead of cash and has failed to pay his taxes. A young, inexperienced and handsome tax assessor arrives to either collect back taxes owed or inventory the farmers back taxes for seizure. When the farmer notices his daughter has taken a shine to the handsome IRS man, he manipulates him into staying with them on the farm and then leads him on a merry chase - bartering all his assets away as quickly as the IRS man can categorize them. Of course the farmer wins the man in the end - he quits his job, marries the girl and joins the family.
