For some reason, flower delivery boy Frankie (Frankie Darro) has taken
it upon himself to hook up Susie (Marjorie Reynolds), a culleague at the
shop he works at, with Mr.Right - and according to his expertise in
graphology (coming from a cheap paperback), Morgan (Alex Callam), the
shop's best customer who claims to be a G-Man, is the perfect boyfriend
for her. Thus, Frankie makes up scheme after scheme to get them together,
much to the dismay of his colleague Jefferson (Mantan Moreland), who only
wants a quiet life and knows what Frankie's schemes usually amount to ...
Eventually, Frankie gets volume two of his graphology book and
finds out Morgan is a cheat and liar just from his handwriting, while
journalist Callahan (Milburn Stone), a guy Frankie has thought little of,
would be perfect for her - and Frankie is absolutely right, too, because
Morgan is an enemy spy wanting to blow up an airplane factory - with the
help of the flowershop Frankie, Jefferson and Susie are working at no less
-, while Callahan has been trailing the baddie for years. But once Frankie
has found out as much, it might already be too late, because Susie has
finally started to fall for Morgan, Morgan and his men have taken Frankie
and Jefferson captive, and while Susie prepares the flowers for a dinner
at the airplane factory, little does she know one of the bouquets contains
a timebomb ...
Of course, in the end, Frankie and Jefferson manage to
give their captors the slip and save the day just in time.
great art, and neither a perfect thriller nor a pefect comedy, but Frankie
Darro and Mantan Moreland are a likeable comic duo and they manage to save
the story over several rough spots, making this one - like most entries in
their short-lived series - an enjoyable little movie and an hour of good
if harmless entertainment.
