Storyline

Victor is a failure; a poor barber who has come to despise poverty with a vengeance. There had to be a way to make a big score, and live to enjoy it. Fate intervenes when Victor's new landlady, Thelma, turns out to be a rich old widow. Victor wastes no time in charming the old girl and they fall madly in love. The only thing crimping Victor's style is Betty, a sweet young nurse. Though Victor is torn between the beautiful young nurse and the beautiful old money, he can only have one. Of course there's Don, an alcoholic extortionist and Victor's best friend, who thinks it's a great idea for Victor to marry the old girl. He generously offers to help - for a piece of the action. Disaster strikes when Thelma's niece Lucy shows up. She's determined to break up the courtship - along with Victor's head. They'd all better get moving, because the old lady's feeling under the weather - and there's a hurricane coming! Written by <brian@vannessfilms.com>

A TWISTED AND HILARIOUS JOURNEY
24 March 2020 | by techpressSee all my reviews

Characters out of Damon Runyon run into characters out of Norman Rockwell in this twisted little comedy.

Lazy barber Victor Hertz, ever the angler, bridges both worlds on a quest for love and riches. How it shakes out is one of the funniest journeys ever depicted.

Handsome looking film features great turns from Seth Barrish, Elaine Wood, Eve Annenberg, Joe Biscone and several featured players. This is a perfect date event.

A technical note: I attended a screening of the newly restored version of the film. The 4K restoration is gorgeous, with exceptional picture and sound.
