| I think I'd avoid that restaurant.
This is a very strange but enjoyable comedy short from RKO. While the comedy team of June Brewster and Carol Tevis are listed in the leads, the film's star really is Grady Sutton.

The film begins with a ganster (Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams) inviting a violinist (Grady Sutton) to his apartment. He wants to pay the musician to play his violin behind the wall while he pretends to play it--in order to impress some girls (Brewster and Tevis). But something unexpected happens...they fall for the wimpy violinist. In fact, they insist that this mousey guy come along with them on a date...a date to a hangout where all the gangsters like to go. There all sorts of crazy stuff happens. I'd say more, but don't want to spoil it.

Seeing folks think Grady is a killer is pretty funny, as his persona was quite the opposite and he'd be the last guy you'd expect to be a gunman! Plenty of laughs and a truly unusual short comedy.
