A flat, inept musical comedy that is only memorable for introducing W.C. Fields' juggling act to celluloid. Set in Berlin (where the original play was located), it tells the story of Miller, a sweet young girl who falls in love with Lyon, heir to a large fortune. Fields is Miller's father,

a coarse type who has spent most of his adult existence juggling in various shows. When he picks up a bunch of items at a dinner party where Lyon and Miller have announced their engagement, all of the gathered Teutons are shocked by his lack of couth. Then he tells the assemblage that his regular

work is barbering and that Miller is a bar waitress and jaws drop, along with three plates that Fields has been juggling. Lyon's family would like to put the clamp on this budding love affair and they make Lyon an offer he can't refuse: they will pay him 10.000 marks per month to manage the family

business if he agrees to say auf weidersehen to Miller. Along comes Errol, a playboy German baron who offers Miller marriage. She is sad without Lyon and he feels the same without her but she accepts Errol's proposal. The wedding takes place in Berlin while Lyon is vainly attempting to get there

to stop it. He arrives late and the deed is done, but she is so happy to see him that the two of them walk out of the church, arm in arm, leaving Errol and the wedding party scratching their heads in bewilderment. Now, if that scene doesn't sound familiar, try to recall the last few minutes of THE

GRADUATE and it makes one wonder if there is anything new under the cinematic sun. Sterling and Conklin, two comedy stars of silents, are not in this enough to save it. It's a Sacher torte that falls flat. Tunes include: "You're Baby-minded Now," "Don't Ever Be Blue," "Though You're Not the First

Wine," "Because of You," and "You Have All My Heart."
