Leon Erroll drinks too much, in the opinion of his mother-in-law, Dot Farley. So she arranges for everyone around him to talk in non-sequiturs until he decides to sober up permanently.
It's written and directed by Al Boasberg, and starts with what appears to be a barfly sketch between Leon, Eddie Kane, and Jack Norton; like the other Boasberg-Erroll collaborations of the period, it seems to have air of a burlesque skit.
Boasberg would eventually cease to direct and return to what he was great at: writing comedies, often as a gag constructor. He had just signed a contract to write for Jack Benny's radio show when he died of a heart attack in 1937, aged 44.
