Welcome to My Family of Phonies, and My Son the Hero!
In 1910 a Wright Brothers airplane delivered a shipment of merchandise from Dayton, Ohio to Columbus, Ohio for department store owner Max Moorehouse, beginning the age of commercial freight air service. In 1910 Henry Ford sold his ten thousandth car, making him the 1910 auto king of America.
On January 12, 1910, Bridget Sarah Veronica Rose Kelly was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her brother began calling her ‘Patsy,’ and she was known the rest of her life as Patsy Kelly, Queen of the Wisecracks. Patsy Kelly never achieved superstar fame, but was always grateful for her time in Hollywood. She said that she owed everything to the movies, and they owed her nothing. She claimed that she was sometimes ashamed to accept the money for her movie appearances, because she laughed her way through each day, enjoying the task of acting in movies more than anything else.
In this cornball comedy, she is a wise-cracking dame married to a punch-drunk boxer. Vaudeville comedian Roscoe Karns is the boxer’s manager. World War Two is raging in Europe and the Pacific, and Roscoe Karn’s son is a war correspondent who believes that his father is very wealthy. In reality, the boxing manager, his broken-down boxer, and the wise-cracking dame are all very broke.
When the son makes an unexpected visit on a two-day leave, the penniless father, with the punch-drunk boxer and his wise-cracking wife decide to pull a big con-job to convince the war hero son that papa is indeed a wealthy man that his son can be proud of. Of course, mayhem and frantic folly will follow. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
