In their final two-reel comedy, the team of blonde and vivacious Thelma Todd and dowdy and fluttery ZaSu Pitts go Hollywood when Todd is offered a chance to star for director Von Sternheim at the Roaring Lion Studios. (Although produced by Hal Roach, the Todd-Pitts comedies were distributed by MGM). On their way West, the girls wreck an entire train car and Thelma misses her one opportunity for stardom. Little Spanky McFarland took time off from the Our Gang set next door to appear with Todd and Pitts in their final comedy. Veteran comedienne ZaSu Pitts left Roach for feature work, but, happily, the studio found the perfect replacement in caustic Patsy Kelly, who had been discovered in the hit Broadway musical Flying Colors.
