For some reason, flower delivery boy Frankie (Frankie Darro) has taken it upon himself to hook up Susie (Marjorie Reynolds), a culleague at the shop he works at, with Mr.Right - and according to his expertise in graphology (coming from a cheap paperback), Morgan (Alex Callam), the shop's best customer who claims to be a G-Man, is the perfect boyfriend for her. Thus, Frankie makes up scheme after scheme to get them together, much to the dismay of his colleague Jefferson (Mantan Moreland), who only wants a quiet life and knows what Frankie's schemes usually amount to ... trouble.

Eventually, Frankie gets volume two of his graphology book and finds out Morgan is a cheat and liar just from his handwriting, while journalist Callahan (Milburn Stone), a guy Frankie has thought little of, would be perfect for her - and Frankie is absolutely right, too, because Morgan is an enemy spy wanting to blow up an airplane factory - with the help of the flowershop Frankie, Jefferson and Susie are working at no less -, while Callahan has been trailing the baddie for years. But once Frankie has found out as much, it might already be too late, because Susie has finally started to fall for Morgan, Morgan and his men have taken Frankie and Jefferson captive, and while Susie prepares the flowers for a dinner at the airplane factory, little does she know one of the bouquets contains a timebomb ...

Of course, in the end, Frankie and Jefferson manage to give their captors the slip and save the day just in time.

 

No great art, and neither a perfect thriller nor a pefect comedy, but Frankie Darro and Mantan Moreland are a likeable comic duo and they manage to save the story over several rough spots, making this one - like most entries in their short-lived series - an enjoyable little movie and an hour of good if harmless entertainment.
