The scene is the boarding house room of a boy who wants to get away from Mom. But nobody leaves him alone, including Mom. A vagrant wanders in and charges 25 cents to leave. And he keeps coming back. Calling the police does no good; they want this vagrant even less than he does. There is a maniac for a superintendent, and a boarder who is in and out of everybody's room all night trying to catch up with his nymphomaniac wife. A homosexual bandit picks the wrong day, and ends up cornered by the nymphomaniac. But the real test is the nut from the loony bin who is a complete schizoid. In one person he plays the parts of two brothers, and has conversations with himself. The characterizations are comically etched and the action is a succession of surprises and misadventures.
