No review available.

Copyrighted April 28, 1932.
The eighth film in the series.
The credit roll as seen at the start of the film is a mess! Charlotte Mineau is Charlotte MENO, Bud Jamison is Bud JAMIESON and Charlie Hall is CHARLEY HALL. They did manage to spell Billy Gilbert's name correctly, however.
At around 16m 48s into the film there is a shot of the audience applauding. In this shot Chris Lynton and Molly Thompson can be seen. Molly Thompson had already been dead for 4 years when this film was released, proving it is stock footage.
