Lesser Jimmy Jump entry from Hal Roach has Charley Chase yet again playing the part. This time out he falls in love with a woman who just happens to be a kleptomaniac, which doesn't work out too well when he's given the job of floorwalker at a local store. Soon the woman shows up there shoplifting and Jimmy must try and find a way to cure her. There were quite a few comedies dealing with kleptomaniacs and they all were rather mixed in term of results and that's pretty much the case here. The early part of the film is extremely funny as Jimmy meets his woman by her father and another man getting into a wreck and eventual fight. This sequence is certainly the highlight of the film as the fathers and then their dogs go at it. The second half of the film, inside the store, doesn't work as well because none of the stealing stuff is all that funny. One great scene does happen inside the store and that's when a bashful man comes in wanting to buy women's lingerie but is too embarrassed.
