Sammy Cohen, Fox Studios' resident Jewish comic, heads the cast of Homesick. This one is all about a cross-country bicycle race, with Sammy Schnable (Cohen) competing against his old pal Ambrose (Harry Sweet). Whoever wins the race will also win the hand of eligible bachelorette Babe (Marjorie Beebe). The ethnicity inherent in Homesick extends to the other bike riders, including stereotypical Italian Henry Armetta and ersatz Polish-American Pat Harmon. Co-star Harry Sweet later became head of the short subjects department at RKO Radio, a position he held until his death in a 1933 plane crash.
