Mike’s daughter is all set to get married. Through a series of misunderstandings Mike ends up in jail with his boss, his wife thinks he’s a Casanova and the real crooks think he’s an even bigger mobster. No slapstick so that makes it palatable but not something to search out.
Mike Ripportella (Henry Armetta) has worked as a foreman for fifteen years at the Brandon Construction Company. His daughter Lucy is about to marry newspaper reporter Jim Keene. Mike’s wife Mary reminds him to ask his boss for the next afternoon off so he can be in their place for the wedding.
Leonard Brandon is in his office when Henderson and Davis walk in. They’re gangsters that want to force him to use their inferior construction material. He says his foreman Mike will just throw the junk away. They say they’ll deal with him. Brandon says he’ll take care of it. Brandon tells Mike he wants to see him the next morning at nine. Since there have been layoffs he’s so nervous he can’t sleep.
The next morning Brandon tells Mike he’s promoting him to salesman. Mike goes home and puts on his old suit to show Brandon he’s ready for the job. He goes back to the office and Brandon sends him to his tailor for more updated suit. That leads to an unfunny bit with the tailor and Mike. Mike leaves the tailors’ and while stopped at red light the blonde Fay Kingman jumps in his car and forces him to speed away. They’re being followed.
Near Mike’s house she loses the tail and gets out. She kisses Mike on the cheek and two neighborhood gossips see it all. When he gets home Mary starts yelling at him calling him Casanova. There’s still lipstick on his cheek. The cops show up and take Mike to headquarters. One stays behind to keep Mary there.
At the police station a confused Mike gets them confused into thinking that Brandon is the boss of the protection racket. Fay was at a construction company one of the gang wrecked when they wouldn’t pay protection. She was running from there when she got into Mike’s car. She didn’t want anything to do with rough stuff. The cop who was with Mary comes in. He’s got a black eye. Mary comes in and she’s put into a cell with Faye. She tells her why she doesn’t like blondes. Fays doesn’t say anything. Because Mike is in jail the wedding has been called off. Jim investigates and reports to his paper that Brandon is the head of the racket and they print it.
At first Fay doesn’t want to be bailed out but she eventually agrees so she can get away from Mary before she finds out anything. Mike is convinced that Brandon is a crook and agrees to be bailed out. Now everybody is confused.
At least there’s no running around and door slamming. A bit with a seltzer bottle at the end but it’s short. This isn’t anything special.
