Storyline

Huckster J. Dockweiler Droop is constantly being chased out of carnivals by a sheriff for not having a license. On one such night, he is befriended by a waif called Rosie, who tags along with him, so he becomes her foster father. Fourteen years later, Rosie, now 17, meets handsome Billy Lowe at a carnival and they instantly fall in love. He invites her and Droop to his 21st birthday party to meet his parents and influential townsfolk. But things begin to look dim for Rosie when she learns Billy's friend, Madeline Van Dorn, intends to marry him. And to make things worse, Droop starts a shell game to fleece all the party guests.

Robert Woolsey's Lone Solo Feature
9 August 2001 | by (Cardiff, CA) – See all my reviews

"Everything's Rosie" is Robert Woolsey's only (surviving) film without the presence of his comedy partner, Bert Wheeler. It is a respectable effort with Woolsey playing a carnival con-man and his adopted daughter trying to fit in with the high society of a small town. This film has many laughs, but the primary difference between this and the other Wheeler/Woolsey films is that it is not afraid to stick dramatic moments into the comedy as well as treating the characters played by Woolsey and Anita Louise as real people instead of slapstick/cartoon characters. I generally liked this movie (being a fan of Wheeler & Woolsey, I usually like all their movies). However, Woolsey's abrasive comic personality is sometimes hard to take for a long period of time, even in this 67 minute film. This film would have worked a lot better had he been able to vent his jokes onto a comic foil, a role which Wheeler usually would have played. The video I have this movie on was taped off of Turner Classic Movies several years ago and features clear sound and very clear picture quality.
