A fast-paced, well-constructed comedy sporting a charming performance from Powell, who plays a barely-legitimate hustler who sees his ticket to easy street come in the form of an invention that can change sewage to artificial rubber. He sets up a corporation and sells stocks in it to raise

some cash and is just about to go into production when he learns that the inventor of the sewage-to-rubber process is a nut case and that he is the one who has been taken. Good casting and direction help to propel this loony, but well-written, comedy along. Featuring a capable assist from the

hardboiled Evelyn Brent.
