An unimpressive but well intending man is given the chance to marry a popular actress, of whom he has been a hopeless fan. But what he doesn't realize is that he is being used to make the actress' old flame jealous.
The dance and comedy vaudeville team of Bob Hope and George Burns had a small part in this film, but their part was cut out of the final version. See more »

Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Well do you?
I can't understand a word he's saying!
He's asking if you'll swear...
No, but I know all the words.

I just finished watching "Sidewalks of New York" (1931) with Buster Keaton as the somewhat dim-witted but rich slumlord Homer Van Dine Harmon. Homer decides to help the youth of his street by building a youth recreational gym. They don't appreciate it & do a job on it by tearing it apart.
Anita Page plays Margie Kelly the woman whom Homer adores but doesn't think he has a prayer of a chance in gaining her interest. His buddy Poggle (Cliff Edwards...voice of Jiminy Cricket fame) encourages him to try to get to know her & ask her to marry him.
Norman Phillips as Clipper Kelly (Margie's brother) is one of a few of the troubled youth Homer wants to help.
And we have Frank Rowan who plays the nasty Butch the Bad Guy. Butch will do all he can to stop Homer from helping the kids because that group is where he collects his new gang members.
What's going to happen? Will Butch's plan to kill Homer come to fruition? Or will the kids decide Homer is A-OK & come to his rescue? I hope you get to watch this comedy.
Keaton wasn't fond of this movie but I found it to be fun!
