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.

7 January 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

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).
