Two crooks on the lam hole up in a seedy little hotel, one disguised as the mother of the other. The hotel owner is a middle aged homosexual who takes a fancy to the younger crook and does his best to enchant him. The crooks take advantage of his lust to get to his till while the crook in drag has his eye on a comely black maid who he tries to strip by plying her with liquor and promises of a future in films.
"May I suggest that you don't bother wondering what it's all about. Just ride with it till it catches you up with a zinger of a finish...A wildly funny suspense farce, brilliantly...fast moving as the turns of a Feydeau farce." - New York Daily News.
