Ole and Chick are making a movie, but the director is not satisfied. So he brings them to a young writer, who outlines them an absurd story. They have to support Jeff and Kitty in setting up a musical revue in their garden and want to bring it up on Broadway. If Jeff is successful he can marry Kitty. But there is his rich friend Woody, who also loves Kitty, Chick's sister Betty, who's in love with a false Russian count, and detective Quimby. They all make the thing very complicated for Ole and Chick. After some mistakes they think that Kitty isn't the right girl for Jeff and they start sabotaging the show, but the Broadway producer is impressed and signs the contract. That's the story the writer tells them. For this he's sued by the director. Written by

I saw this movie as a teenager and always remember it for its so many continuous gag scenes. I especially remember the potted plant that a delivery person was attempting to deliver and kept calling out "delivery for Mrs. ????) and each time the gag came up the plant was larger until at the end, the delivery vehicle was a flat bed truck and the plant was now a full grown tree. There were many other memorable scenes and gags. I have told my wife and children about this movie and keep looking for a copy of the movie to show them.
Is this movie still available in some form - Video tape, DVD? I would love to obtain a copy.
