Storyline

Patsy's working at Rumplemeyer's Donut Shop in Brooklyn. By accident she catches Mr. Rumplemeyer's trousers in the donut machine as he's leaving to pick his niece who's arriving from the old country, so he gives Patsy cab fare and sends her. She forgets her purse, so when she arrives at the immigration office, she can't pay the cabbie, who tells her he'll wait while the meter runs. Inside, Patsy finally finds the high-spirited Lyda, but by then, Patsy has sneaked into the holding area and may need a passport to get out. She hides in Lyda's trunk, but with the cabbie, a suspicious immigration officer, and a traffic cop buzzing around will uncle and niece ever connect? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Always great to see Patsy Kelly
2 July 2012 | by (West Coast) – See all my reviews

I don't care anything about Thelma Todd being present or not as others have stated in their reviews. Or if this was up to the standards of a Hal Roach short. Patsy Kelly is quite the star and anything she's in is worth watching to me.

All those who have made their negative remarks are simply sharing their opinion which isn't much. Because of this short I am now familiar with Lyda Roberti, Joe Twerp and I was happy to see Robert Emmett O'Connor.

I thought the scene where Kelly is twirled around was pretty funny and well done.

Looking forward to seeing more Patsy Kelly!
