Summary
  • Bank dick: "W.C. Fields is Egbert Souse, a lowly bank guard who divides his time between the Black Pussy Cat Cafe and his dreaded family. His humdrum life changes when fate leads him to heroism, Hollywood and the good life. Packed with classic routines, including a wacky cops and robbers chase"--Container
  • My little chickadee: "The reputaion of voluptuous Flowerbelle Lee (West) is tarnished when she is seen embracing a masked bandit in her bedroom. Forced to leave town until she can return married and respectable, FLowerbelle boards a train where she meets the incorrigible Guthbert J. Twillie (Fields) and soon accepts his marriage proposal. The hilarous adventures continue as the newlyweds journey to the Last Gasp saloon in this rollicking romp"--Container
  • You can't cheat an honest man: "W.C. Fields portrays Larson E. Whipsnade, ringmaster of the seedy circus Giganticus. Whipsnade gets nothing but trouble from his performers, and his daughter (Constande Moore) is torn between a wealthy cad and a charming ventriloquist, played by Edgar Bergen"--Container
  • It's a gift: "Harold Bissonette, a bungling, henpecked grocer dreaming of California's golden sunshine. A small inheritance from his Uncle Bean tempts Bissonette to sell everything and buy an orange ranch--sight unseen. Along the way, he matches wits with dogs, children and chicken feathers, snatching success from the jaws of defeat at the last madcap minute"--Container
  • International house: "When a scientist in China invents a television, everyone around the globe clamors to purchase the rights to the mesmerizing new invention"--Container
