Dave Finkel's family and friends take him out to a Speakeasy for a birthday celebration. Many distractions prevent him from enjoying his meal, including a seductive Jean Harlow who tries to pick him up. (The dialog with Jean in this scene is the highlight of this leisurely paced Al Christie Talking Play released in December 1929 by Paramount).
Jewish dialect comedian Will King stars as Dave Finkel and is ably supported by Dot Farley as his wife Claire; Billy Bevan as George Downing; Natalie Joyce and Otto Fries as Mr. & Mrs. Edward Langtry.
Jean Harlow was doing bit parts in features and several silent Hal Roach comedies in 1928-9. This early short has the distinction of being one of her only surviving sound 2 reel comedy appearances before becoming a star in features.
