Storyline

Other than the title, this film has no connection at all to the 1934 W.C. Fields film of the same title even though some sources give the plot of the Fields' film as the plot of this film. Hubert Abercrombie Gumm (Hugh Herbert), a flighty, eccentric screwball (what else)acquires a job as an executive at a radio station at the insistence of his only-slightly less eccentric aunt Fannie Handley (Esther Dale), who is married to one of the company owners, Ernest Truex. After mixing up the script pages to the various radio programs, Hubert sets out to get the name of a returning explorer on a contract for the radio station. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
