| Amusing comedy short is brief and to the point...
PATSY KELLY is a bit more brash than usual as THELMA TODD's roommate, informed by their landlord that unless they pay the rent that evening he'll have to evict them.

Kelly rubs an Aladdin's lamp and asks for $50,000 but instead of a genie a criminal with hot money in his hands drops off the loot in the sum of $50,000 at their apartment until he can return to collect it. Naturally, Kelly thinks it's a way to pay the landlord and flee with the cash. Todd isn't sure what to do, and always comes up with the line that she has to "take a rest and think about it." It's an amusing caper, totally improbable as most of these screwball shorts always were, but good for a few laughs.

Shown on TCM as part of a tribute to Thelma Todd, it's an example of her flair for comedy in the '30s before her untimely and controversial death.
