Storyline

Leon (Leon Errol) keeps making solo trips to Buffalo and his wife Dorothy (Dorothy Granger) suspicions that some hanky-panky is involved. The next time Leon shuffles off to Buffalo, Dorothy follows on the same airplane disguised as a beautiful-but-poor widow from the south. Dorothy, in disguise, quickly gets more of Leon's attention on the plane than she ever got at home. The plane is grounded short of Buffalo, and the ever-gallant Leon steps up to take care of the poor widow's hotel bill, but has to register her as his wife in order to do so. Dorothy reveals who she is, but Leon wiggles out of the situation in his usual wormy fashion. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Jack Rice Seems To Be Everyone's Brother-in-Law
9 January 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Dorothy Granger thinks that whenever husband Leon Errol makes a business trip to Buffalo, he has a woman on the side, so she disguises herself and gets Leon to let her travel half-fare.... and then shows up as herself.

It's a very pleasant Errol short from his long-running series at RKO. This time, Miss Granger gets to show off her comic chops and dish slinging, while Leon gets to react to her shenanigans.

Vince Barnett has a small role as a suspicious hotel detective, but the real treat is Jack Rice as Miss Granger's brother, trying to convince her she's wrong about Leon. Usually he spent his time in Edgar Kennedy's RKO series as his brother-in-law, driving Edgar nuts with his laziness and hatefulness. I guess Jack preferred Leon as his sister's husband.
