| Wanna buy a Ball?
The teaming of zany Joe Penner and Lucille Ball might incongruous to many the two actually make this RKO comedy work. Though how Lucy ever got hitched to Penner will be one of life's mysteries.

Penner is a dumb as a brick bank clerk who spills the beans on his bank's security measures. When its robbed Penner is thought of as an inside man. Not only that, wouldn't you know it the bank robbers hitch their getaway car to Penner and Ball's new trailer which they just won in a contest. Penner's asleep inside and soon enough the three crooks discover they have a hostage if needed.

Then to Top it all off Penner and the crooks get involved with June Travis who is running away from home to marry Fritz Feld, a no account phony count from some mittel Europa country. And Lucy hooks up with Feld rushing to claim his bride.

The laughs come fast and furious inthis comedy although Penner is something of an acquired taste. He died young and who knows how he might have done on television.

Tom Kennedy who matches Penner in wit and IQ is always a favorite. One of the dumber crooks and/or cops on the big screen when he's on the other side. He's my favorite here.

Lots of laughs in this ancient chestnut.
