This sequel to the 1927 George Jessel vehicle Private Izzy Murphy finds Jessel reprising the role of Lower East Side entrepreneur Izzy Goldberg. That's right, "Goldberg" -- Izzy doesn't adopt the name of "Murphy" until he abandons the perfume business to pose as an underworld thug. It's all for the sake of heroine Marie (Audrey Ferris), the daughter of French perfume manufacturer Jules de Gondelaurier. Marie and her father have been kidnapped by Orchid Joe (John Miljan), a flower-loving lunatic who despises all perfume merchants. Any resemblance between Sailor Izzy Murphy and real life was purely coincidental.
