Storyline

When the First Union National Bank of Williamstown is robbed, the three bank robbers get away by hitching their car to Wilbur's trailer. When the police find part of Wilbur's coat in front of the open safe, they suspect bank teller Wilbur of being in on the robbery. But according to Carol, Wilbur is not smart enough to rob a bank and it shows. While on the run, they come into contact with Julie, the copper heiress, and make plans to have Wilbur help kidnap her. Of course, Wilbur has no clue as to their true intentions. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Lucy and the not so long trailer.
1 January 2004 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

Silly but amusing comedy built around radio comic Joe Penner as a stupid bank clerk who becomes involved in a bank robbery when he wins a trailer in a lottery. Some good gags - I like the one where Joe pulls up to a gas station with the trailer and no car - and able support from people like Lucille Ball as Joe's wife, and Friz Feld as a fortune hunting Casanova, make this a breezy way to spend 70 or so minutes. Pity other more "important" pictures weren't as enjoyable.
