Storyline

It is the Lindsay's wedding anniversary and they are fighting. To help them settle down with a house and children, Uncle Matt writes Lord Epping for his help in getting the Lindsay's a war orphan. Unfortunately, he does not state which war and Epping gets one from WWI. The orphan is Fifi who is in her twenties and there is trouble for Uncle Matt and Dennis if their wives find out. So Uncle Matt takes Fifi to the Bide-A-While Inn to hide her, but Miss Pepper believes that something is wrong with this couple with the same last names. Trouble brews when Uncle Matt pretends to be Lord Epping and Fifi's boyfriend Pierre comes looking for her. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

These Mexican Spitfire movies are usually little more than a collection of bits from comedy short subjects, and RKO was one of the two best studios for short subjects in this period -- Columbia was the other with the Stooges and Andy Clyde. Lupe Velez does her broken English doubletalk, Leon Errol does a bit of his crazy legs routine and alternates between his usual voice and his Lord Epping bit and the usual silliness ensues.

In this case the effort is strengthened by the addition of several wonderful comedy performers. Fritz Feld is there, clicking his heels and popping; Tom Kennedy has a small bit as the sheriff and Zasu Pitts shows up, although her role is far too small and doesn't use her as well as it might.

Plot? Plot? Of course there's a bit of plot as the Lindsays try to get Lord Epping's business by having him get them a war orphan and he shows up with girl -- a war orphan from World War One. Does it really matter?
