No Bed of Roses

Flower deliverer Frankie Darro (as Jimmy O'Brien) has two hobbies. First, he fancies himself a "graphologist" - that means Mr. Darro can determine what kid of a person you are by examining your handwriting. Second, Darro likes to play matchmaker when he meets an attractive single woman. His driver, wide-eyed Mantan Moreland (as Thomas Jefferson), calls Darro "Mr. Cupid". When Darro delivers some flowers to pretty Marjorie Reynolds (as Susie Carey), she rejects them...

Darro has determined Ms. Reynolds' suitor to be a pansy. That is explained when we learn the lonely Reynolds has been sending flowers to herself. For reasons left unexplained, Darro shows no sexual interest in Reynolds, and tries to set her up with a suitable mate. Alas, the man Darro picks turns out to be a shady character. Everyone is "Chasing Trouble". The plot leads to murder. Future "Gunsmoke" TV doctor Milburn Stone (as Pat Callahan) has a supporting role.
