In court, Eddie Cantor makes a fool of a cop, who retaliates when he catches Eddie speeding. Eddie does a vaudeville routine for the cop, including the song "My Wife is on a Diet." Written by

For those who want an example of the comedy and song stylings of Eddie Cantor without seeing a feature film first, I would highly recommend Getting A Ticket. The top feature of this film is Cantor doing one of his patented comedy songs My Wife Is On A Diet. His comedy patter is pretty good too as he makes a few jokes at the expense of the Great Depression that was looming all over America. It loomed pretty good over Cantor especially as he was wiped out in the Stock Market Crash.
Cantor's simple schnook character is honed to perfection as he goes into a whole routine with a cop played by Charles Wilson who acts as Eddie's straight man.
Does he get out of the ticket? You have to watch and enjoy Cantor Getting A Ticket to find out.
