Storyline

One of the best of Universal's "quickie" musicals with Johnny Downs as the world's most inept lawyer who continually appears before Edgar Kennedy, an easily-frustrated Judge wearing the business end of a mop as a toupee. A retirement home for ladies is declared bankrupt and residents and former actresses Sylvia Swan, Tess Gibson, Lizzie Rockingham and Mary Carter decide to save the day by reopening a raided-closed casino owned by Barney "Gimpy" Cole as a night club. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
