In their first comedy two-reeler of 1934, the female answer to Laurel and Hardy, Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly, once again play sales girls, this time demonstrating washing machines in a department store window. They fail to get out before the store closes and have to spend the night as window display -- much to the delight of drunken Arthur Housman, who keeps an unsteady vigil on a nearby fire hydrant. In her fourth comedy opposite the vivacious Thelma Todd after replacing ZaSu Pitts, Patsy Kelly had already become a veteran in the style of timeless humor favored by the Hal Roach company.
