To help a girl keep her job, two small time salesmen, Andy and Dudley, talk her boss, a lady head of a cosmetics firm, into selling their line of flavored lipsticks. They become business partners and romantic interests. After a promotional campaign on a musical variety radio program, the lipsticks are a big success. The boys accidentally misplace a bag with the company's securities, which in turn is secretly stolen by their crooked manager. Andy and Dudley, now charged with embezzlement, are on the run when they get themselves into an auto race, where their car is sponsored by their company and their business competitor backs the rival car in the race.Written by

This Wheeler&Woolsey film finds the guys selling flavored lipsticks on the street
corner to make a buck. People did that sort of stuff in the Depression. They get
noticed, first by cops but then by Thelma Todd and one of her salesgirls Dorothy
Lee. As usual Lee pairs with Bert while Thelma Todd does some of her best vamping with Bob.
George Meeker works for Todd, but is secretly working for a rival to sabotage her
store. When the boys lift some valuable securities accidentally he finds them
and sics the cops on them.
The finale is a kind of Grand Prix marathon and Bert and Bob are quite inventive in their methods of overcoming obstacles.
Ruth Etting makes a guest appearance with one song in the beginning, always
The race and a sequence where they play a on by stealing an office on the fly
is similar to what was done in The Sting. Maybe George Roy Hill got the idea
from seeing this.
Good fun from W&W.
