Sad sack Dustin Willoughby is a true believer in the power of astrology. His adherence to the forecasts of his horoscope has alienated his fiancée and cost him his job at the bank. While working as a lowly bus boy in a nightclub, he catches the attention of some high-stakes gamblers with his ability to forecast race results and establishes himself as an astrologer to high society clients.The high rollers mistakenly confuse his horoscope with that of professional boxer "The Salvador Slayer", and bet the ranch on the unknown Central-American pugilist. After they realize their error, they force Dustin into the ring to try and help save the day. Written by
Joe E. Brown made a horrible business decision by leaving Warners and signing to do a series of independent comedies for David Loew. This was the first and it is cheap looking and unfunny. There is an astrology theme to it, but the production values are bad and Brown's performance is whiny and annoying. The supporting cast does nothing to help. Avoid at all costs.
