Moxie Slaight is on the air, teaming with his lovely partner to send jokes and tunes into the living rooms of mainstream USA. But America is tuning out. Moxie needs a fresh gag writer to spark his radio show…and an opportunistic agent sets Moxie up with a hot new penman. And where does this creative scribe find his material? From the well-thumbed pages of old joke books! Jimmy Durante delivers plenty of Moxie and future Mexican Spitfire series star Lupe Velez is his cohort in this free-wheeling sendup of the era’s radio days. It’s not the most crazy-boned of Durante’s films (that honor perhaps goes to Hollywood Party), but it does have the star’s signature malaprops, Eugene Pallette as cowboy crooner Sourwood Sam and Schnozzola’s Hot Patatta. Hotcha!

for his radio program which he shares with the loopy Lupe Velez.
The plot is very thin, but there are some very nice moments: Jimmy sings
"Hot Pattata" and is joined by Lupe as they sing "I'm Just Putty
In Your Hands". Lupe sings "Oh Me! Oh My! Oh You!". The great Mills Brothers
perform two songs: "Swing It Sister" and "Money In My Clothes".
The cast includes Norman Foster, William Gargan and
Marian Nixon with some very familiar supporting players:
Eugene Pallette, Sterling Holloway and Franklin Pangborn.
The picture and sound quality are quite good. There are no extras.
