Leon Errol is a jewelry salesman whose work keeps him making calls at night on prospective buyers, but his wife has her own suspicions about just what Leon is up to and work is very low on her list. She lets him know that should she catch him spreading his affections anywhere but at home, he will rue the day. Leon's boss send him to visit a woman buyer at her hotel room, his wife follows him and it is no great leap when she jumps to the wrong conclusion. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Fast and furious
3 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Hollywood's favorite alcoholic playboy is a henpecked jewelry salesman in this RKO short subject. Married to the ever suspicious Dorothy Granger whose suspicions are constantly fueled by her mother-in-law Isabel LaMal, one battle ax harridan of a woman I wouldn't wish on Osama Bin-Laden. She convinces Dorothy to keep tabs on Leon as he goes out for a business meeting. A little monkey business to be sure.

His cause isn't helped any when the buyer he's meeting turns out to be the beautiful Dorothy Christy. After the wife tails Leon to the hotel where they were conducting the buying it's one non-stop series of situations for Leon that he has to extricate himself from. Of no help is house detective Al Hill who sees something suspicious with Leon. He has that way about him.

Gem Jams is one fast and furious short subject with the comic talents of Leon Errol in full display.
