Both Joe E. Brown and Guinn Williams are named Joe Holt; Brown is a shipping clerk and Williams is a champion Canadian swimmer. Socialite Ginger Rogers gets them confused and thinks that Brown is the inventor of an unsinkable swim suit and enters him in a 20 mile (32 km) swim race. Written by

I'm dizzy. I'm having hot flashes. My head is heavy. I've got red and green specks before my eyes. My ears are ringin'. My liver is numb. Say, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find that I'm dead! Oh! Oh, Doctor.

A penniless inventor is mistaken for a Canadian swimming champ and swept into competing in a swimming race from Santa Catalina Island to the California mainland.
YOU SAID A MOUTHFUL gave rubber-faced comic Joe E. Brown a fine vehicle to show off his talents. Whether he's attempting to demonstrate his unsinkable bathing suit, trying to learn to swim in an ornate bathtub or encountering numerous difficulties on the 22-mile aquatic contest, Brown is never less than hilarious. Here, he is given fine support by perky, pretty Ginger Rogers, who lends her special magic to light up the screen.
OUR GANG's Allen Farina' Hoskins proves a good sidekick for Brown; this would be one of his last significant film roles. Preston Foster plays Brown's romantic rival; movie mavens will recognize an uncredited Guinn Big Boy' Williams as the hapless real swim champ.
Actual location filming at Avalon on beautiful Catalina Island greatly adds to the ambiance of the picture.
