Olsen's Night Out is the alternate title for Olsen's Big Moment. Swedish-dialect comedian El Brendel stars as Olsen, a bumbling janitor determined to enjoy his first night out in months. In short order, Olsen becomes involved with a gangster who doesn't want his sister to enter society. He also meets a tipsy millionaire (Walter Catlett) who is being pursued by a blonde gold-digger. Olsen solves everyone's problems, then retreats to the safety of his basement. While El Brendel is very much an acquired taste, Olsen's Night Out shows him to excellent advantage.
