Radio comedian Al Pearce heads the cast of Republic's One Exciting Week. Pearce is cast as wartime hero Dan Flannery, who while en route to a homecoming celebration is waylaid by three crooks. Conked on the noggin, Flannery awakens with amnesia, and is convinced by the crooks that he's Public Enemy Number One, on the lam from the law. He is then instructed to impersonate himself (!), claim the $10000 honorarium collected by his friends and neighbors, and turn it over to the crooks. The fact that the villains are played by Jerome Cowan, Shemp Howard and Pinky Lee is indication enough that One Exciting Week is not to be taken seriously. Featured in the cast is Arlene "Chatterbox" Harris, a regular on Pearce's popular radio show.
