Jack's father is sending Jack away to keep him from the gambling, booze, girls and late nights. He has Ossie go as Jack's companion, not knowing that Ossie does the same things as Jack. They decide to go to California and the trip is long as Jack stops for every girl he sees. In a restaurant in the southwest, they meet Poncho. It seems that every time Ossie sees Pancho, he does something that almost gets him into a fight. When they get to Pasadena, the boys meet Connie and Penny and Aunt Polly. After a few days, Jack proposes and Connie accepts. However, that is that day that Mabel, Jacks jilted fiancée from New York, shows up. Written by

Early talkie does not utilize the talents of Joe E Brown to the fullest. I'm no Bela Lugosi fan, I didn't even notice he was in the movie, so that is irrelevant. Joe E Brown plays another one of his shy templetons who is sent away from the city because his dad thinks he is getting into too much trouble, which of course is all a misunderstanding. There, he meets a girl and falls for her and a guy, probably Lugosi who is hounding her. Complications arise as Brown is always in the wrong place or in uncompromising situations. Scenes of note are Brown imitating a baby, a funny slapstick finale with Brown running around in his PJs in a hotel and trying not to be seen. Mistaken identity and sexual innuendo is also rife. That's about it.
