| The Butter, Egg and Fuel Man
Max Miller is running a carnival pitch as a spieler with Olive Blakeney and George E. Stone. Wallace Evennett shows up with a pill that, added to water, will make a cheap substitute for gasoline. With everyone in tow, Miller talks his way into the offices of Clifford Heatherley to back this in a big company. Heatherley's plan, however, is to use this obvious scam to drive down the price of petroleum shares and buy them up at a cheap price.

Max Miller was a fast-talking British comic whose patter tended to be off-color. Here, he's very amusing for most of the movie until the final quarter, when the plot requires that things be done and he occasionally stop talking. Up until then he's a delight in this Teddington production from Warner Brothers, where they had parked a couple of their contract players; Miss Blakeney had appeared in the 1934 version of the similarly plotted THE BUTTER AND EGG MAN.
