The Bean-Counter Rolls Out the Barrel

Do you think that 'Nerds' are a product of the computer age? Nope, even in 1938, long before the Big Bang Theory, there were Nerds, and this movie is about a total nerd that becomes a town hero in spite of himself! Oliver Boggs works in New York City as a statistics expert . . . he can rattle obscure facts off quicker than a long-tailed cat scooting in a room full of rocking chairs. He and an old fellow work for a company that supplies businesses with any facts and knowledge that they might need. Being a movie fan, he goes to the neighborhood theater often, and when the theater has a contest to count the number of beans in a barrel, he get to work measuring beans and calculating the volume of the barrel, and wins the contest, and a huge cash prize of fifteen hundred dollars. He wins with a number that is only three beans off of the total, and when his boss yells at him for not working hard enough, explaining that lots of people lose their jobs and jobs are hard to find in these days of depression. Boggs gathers his courage and quits his job, determined to buy a barrel factory and find wealth and success. We next spot him entering small town Peckham Falls, where he has discovered a barrel factory that is for sale. He buys the factory for $500, and inherits the one employee, a cute blonde girl named Oleander. He soon learns that the world is no longer needing a lot of barrels, but he is determined to make a go of it. Oleander's dad invents a smaller collapsible barrel that will revolutionize the industry, and all looks good for Boggs and his company. Boggs sells his barrels to the town rich guy, old man Ross, who has a pretty but snooty daughter that Boggs thinks he likes.

Enter a scoundrel that has been trying to buy old man Ross' factory and shut it down. When Ross buys all of the barrels and the town is rejuvenated, the scoundrel schemes to grab the patent on the barrels from Boggs and his partner, and put them all out of business. He seems to have succeeded and Boggs is about to be run out of town when suddenly . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
