Storyline

All the qualified men line up to be chosen, as an heiress advertises that she will marry the man with the most interesting mustache, that marriage which comes with a mansion. John Syrup Soother wins the marriage to who he believes is the heiress, Olive Palmer, a tank of a woman who has lost her beauty with age. But he learns that he his betrothed is not the heiress, Diana Palmer, but her mother. Howson Lotts, a shyster and one of Diana's other suitors, sells John a beach-front house for his new life, that house which is not all that it seems on the surface. In the meantime, others still will do anything to be Diana's betrothed, that choice in which John now has a different but still vested interest. Written by Huggo

Simply bizarre but it ended well.

"Galloping Bungalows" is a strange little comedy that, fortunately, gets a bit better near the end. It begins with a rich lady announcing in the paper that she will marry a man with a cool mustache--and tons of men apply. However, the man who wins the lady is in for a laugh, as it's not her that is the heiress but her daughter. Next, you see some sharpies cheat the guy when he goes to buy a house. Finally, there is a madcap scene involving a firetruck that finally IS worth seeing.

The film suffers from three distinctly separate plots--none of which really work together. It also suffers because most of it isn't very funny. Fortunately, the firetruck bit is good and it appears as if they built the truck specifically for films, as I doubt ANY truck really acts that way! It makes for some great chase scenes and the film ended on a good note---though overall this Sid Smith and Billy Bevan film is pretty flat.

By the way, when the bungalow is blowing in the wind, look closely and you'll see the strings pulling it back and forth! A bit sloppy.
