Perennial second lead Una Merkel and radio dialect comedian Parkyakarkus team up in the Monogram musical fantasy Sweethearts of the USA. While working in a defense plant, Patsy (Merkel) is rendered unconscious-or at least, more unconscious than usual. While knocked out, she dreams that she's a fearless detective, teamed with tangle-tongued Parkyakarkus on the trail of bank robbers. If things could get any sillier, they probably would, but unfortunately the film lasts only 63 minutes. Incidentally, Parkyakarkus' real name was Harry Einstein, and he was the father of comic actors Bob Einstein and Albert Brooks.
