Eddie Cantor's Broadway show on film (sorry, no singing)
9 May 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Eddie Cantor (Samuel 'Kid' Boots) becomes a witness for Lawrence Gray (Tom Sterling), who trying to divorce his gold digger wife Billie Dove (Eleanore Belmore). They go to a resort to avoid the wife until the date of the divorce case, but the wife's shyster lawyer tracks them there. There he meets Clara Bow (Clara McCoy) who falls for him, but he has several runins with her boyfriend Malcolm Waite (Big Boyle) and with the wife. After an exciting chase, he arrives at the court house to help finalize the divorce and also gets the girl.

Many really funny sequences.
