Miss Whitney's bankrupt hotel is for sale; she hires the Ritz Brothers to keep guests in for appearance's sake. They do so and manipulate rival bidders in slapstick fashion. Written by

The earliest documented telecast of this film was Friday 23 January 1942 on New York City's pioneer television station WNBT (Channel 1); it was followed by the initial telecast of the James Cagney Grand National feature _Great Guy (1936)_ (qv.) See more »
A woman is about to sell her hotel so she hires the Ritz Brothers to make sure people stay there when the new owner comes so that he'll think its a busy place. I enjoyed several of the later day Ritz Brothers films but this one here just doesn't work. For the most part they come off as a rip off of The Marx Brothers and their style just doesn't make for a very funny film. There are a few funny scenes involving the brothers dealing with various people inside the hotel including a woman with one eye and a suicidal man.
