Storyline

Poor glazier Sam Bisbee has invented break-proof glass. He intends to show it off to a convention of automobile men. Due to a mixup his car is switched with another and his demonstration toss of a brick simply breaks the car's windshield. On the way home he thinks a woman is trying to commit suicide and so prevents her. The woman is really Princess Lescaboura, who arrives in Bisbee's home town looking for him.

W.C. Fields is the main attraction in the sort of frustrated husband role he played many times. It includes his golf routine, later shot as a short [Golf Specialist, The (1930)] and also seen in the remake.

Later remade as You're Telling Me! (1934).
