Mack Sennett's Crime Comedy
9 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wallace Ford stars as Bill Bogard, a circus worker who wins a 150,000 Pound sweepstakes prize. He travels via ship to England to retrieve his winnings. Professor Limberly (Ernest Torrence), a hypnotist who is working on the cruise ship, gets wind of Bill's good luck. He manages to hypnotize Bill and get the ticket. Bill comes out of his mindless state to learn that the Professor has jumped ship, supposedly committing suicide. But Bill, with the help of a friend, manages to expose the disguised Professor and regain possession of his sweepstakes ticket.

An even balance of mystery and mirth, not nearly as bad as it's reputation.
