A decent gangster comedy in which loser Milton Berle inherits an art gallery which is then taken over by Cesar Romero, a bookie to whom Berle is indebted, and from there both of them become involved with art forgers while Romero romances Carole Landis.
There is an abundance of dated and groan-inducing gags (mostly from Berle) but the movie breezes along at a fair pace and Romero seems to be having fun as the smoothie trying to learn about the art business. As the movie bounces to a close not long after the hour mark, it doesn't get bogged down in unnecessary plotting and makes for a pretty enjoyable time passer.
