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
Wow a tough trio of reviewers for this one! I very much like Patsy Kelly's performances to me she is not abrasive but refreshing and entertainingly expressive. I thought there were a number of really funny bits including the business of Mr. Rumplemeyer's trousers going through the donut machine and Patsy's trying to avoid the cabbie by claiming she just got off the boat and the last gag delivered by Rumplemeyer. Lyda Roberti was okay but her song and dance number was pretty bland. I liked this short and am glad I saw it. Besides, how can one not like a comedy that has an actor in it who evidently gave himself the name of Joe Twerp?
