"That Man" is Hugh (woo-woo) Herbert, here cast as lovable eccentric Thomas J. Jesse. Befriending apartment-house elevator operator Jimmy Whalen (Tom Brown), Jesse makes it his mission in life to smooth the course of true love for Jimmy and pretty Australian lass Nancy Lee (Mary Maguire). The plot contrives to drag in a cute little baby, whom Nancy is trying to extricate from an orphanage. The connection between heroine and baby is never explained; all that's important is that Jimmy agrees to adopt the kid by fade-out time. The principal set for That Man's Here Again, a lavish apartment hotel (complete with white telephones), seems too elaborate for a mere 60-minute programmer, suggesting that the set was borrowed from one of Warners' prestige productions.
