Storyline

Firefighter "Smokin'" Joe falls for the aggressive wiles of Daphne and marries her, and this does not set well with a fellow-fireman, who had designs of his own on Joe's new bride. Joe invents a new fire-extinguishing power, and sets a fie in his own house to demonstrate it. But his bitter-rival has switched powder on Joe. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

So-so Shemp Howard vehicle
25 July 2005 | by (Limerick,Ireland) – See all my reviews

Shemp plays a fireman who is "snagged" by a woman (Daphne Pollard) in a park. She's been following all the advice in her book - "How to make love". Even so, he's wary at first. Then she tells him that she turned down the advances of a fellow officer of his. Shemp doesn't like the other guy, so he decides to marry her! Once they've settled down to married bliss, he thinks he can make a fortune by inventing a "putter-outer" fire powder. Oddly enough, it works. But, needless to say, things don't go smoothly when he tests it out on his own house and wife!! OK Shemp short, nothing special. Good physical comedy early on by Daphne Pollard.
