FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Determined to cut wasteful expenditures, T. P., the head of Paramutual Pictures, selects dimwitted paperhanger Morty Tashman to spy on studio employees while posing as an errand boy. Almost immediately havoc reigns as the well-meaning but disaster-prone Morty blunders through a series of calamities. He disrupts the filming of a western, accidentally becomes the escort of a voluptuous European beauty attending a Hollywood premiere, panics the studio stenographic department, and ruins a sound-recording session. Finally, he turns a birthday party for a "great star" into a total shambles by almost drowning the woman in a flood of exploding champagne. The distraught T. P. decides to fire Morty before the entire studio is destroyed. Two top directors, however, who witnessed Morty's antics at the birthday party, regard him as a potential star comedian, and T. P. is persuaded to sign him as the new reigning comic of Paramutual Pictures.
