An occasionally funny farce starring Wheeler and Woolsey, who were the Abbott and Costello of their day. In this film the two are salesmen pushing a brand-new flavored lipstick. They have romantic forays with Todd, the owner of a glamorous beauty parlor, and Lee, one of the parlor's

demonstrators. The boys inadvertently steal some stocks and bonds and have a couple of silly detectives, Burtis and Briggs, on their tails. It all culminates in a cross-country auto race, done in Keystone Kops style. Songs were written by Ruby and Kalmar, who also cowrote the script. Some of their

better efforts were "Tired of It All," "Keep Romance Alive," and "Keep on Doin' What You're Doin."
