Based on the musical comedy of the same name, Kosher Kitty Kelly stars Viola Dana in the title role. The story is a variation on the Abie's Irish Rose theme, detailing the marriage between an Irish Catholic and a Jew. Much of the humor is of the roughhouse variety, though there are a few touches of tenderness, courtesy of Nat Carr as Moses Ginsburg and Vera Gordon as Mrs. Feinbaum. In fact, "official" heroine Kitty Kelly generally takes a back seat to the wistful middle-aged romance between Carr and Gordon. Handling the directorial reins was James W. Horne, best known today for his collaborations with Laurel and Hardy and his gloriously silly Columbia serials of the 1940s.
