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>

Dead or Dying
20 January 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Al Shean, of the great vaudeville team of Gallagher & Shean, had buried his partner seven years before this, the next to last of the Roach 'Girl Friends' series was released, and they could have dug up the corpse for something that smelled less. Thelma Todd was dead and Lyda Roberti, paired here with Patsy Kelly would be dead in a year and there's no chemistry. Well, Roach was shutting down short subject production and these were almost certainly made simply to fill contracts with MGM. There's an air of cheapness, not only in the sets but in the poor doubling, the cheating close-up shots to disguise them and what looks like Jules-White style wirework.

Miss Roberti does have a nice musical interlude early on with the Avalon Boys, but between her accent and her family training as a circus clown, she offers little sense of byplay and makes Miss Kelly's brashness even more annoying than usual. A sad successor to the early Todd-Pitts entries in the series. Longtime Roach cameraman Art Lloyd manages some nice camera-work, but I'd miss this one if I were you.
