Brendel plays a Swedish janitor who is constantly frustrated in his attempts to enjoy his night off. Complications involving a girl about to marry a rich man for his money, a gangster attempting to prevent his kid sister from getting embroiled in high society, and other inanities combine

to form the basis of this none-too-funny chuckler. An unusual film in that it employs the talents of two of the finest character actors of the time, Brendel and Catlett, in leading roles. Brendel, whose perpetually perplexed expression and whose phrase "Yumpin' Yiminy" made him the stock Swedish

comic, and the google-eyed, fidgety Catlett were not a regular team.
