Ole and Chick are making a movie, but the director is not satisfied. So he brings them to a young writer, who outlines them an absurd story. They have to support Jeff and Kitty in setting up a musical revue in their garden and want to bring it up on Broadway. If Jeff is successful he can marry Kitty. But there is his rich friend Woody, who also loves Kitty, Chick's sister Betty, who's in love with a false Russian count, and detective Quimby. They all make the thing very complicated for Ole and Chick. After some mistakes they think that Kitty isn't the right girl for Jeff and they start sabotaging the show, but the Broadway producer is impressed and signs the contract. That's the story the writer tells them. For this he's sued by the director. Written by

This movie was one of my childhood favorites. I had not seen this movie during the last 20 years. I attempted to contact the production studio and even the motion picture academy. The academy infomed me that there was a long-standing legal dispute about the writing credits. Because of the legal dispute the film has not been shown in the US (TV & Video) for over 20 years.
Good news, I was able to purchase a VHS tape from a video distributor in Ireland. The tape was in PAL format and not viewable in VCRs made in the US. I had the tape transferred to US format. Now I can enjoy this wonderful movie anytime I want.
