Alexander Botts (Joe E.Brown) considers himself to be a natural born salesman ... unfortunately the nice little novelties he sells are too small for his sweetheart Sally (Carol Hughes) to marry him, so he decides to go into the tractor business, and gets himself a job with the company Earthworm Tractors ... but from hereon, everything seems to go wrong: first he puts expenses without end on the company account, then he demonstrates the advantages of the Earthworm Tractors to the wrong man, Johnson (Guy Kibbee), then he even runs his tractor over the car of a prospected buyer (William B.Davidson) ... but somehow he seems to come out on top, and even Johnson's daughter Mabel (June Travis) falls for him.

But she wants to persuade Botts to sell tractors to her daddy - a rich businessman in lumbering - at any price, and the methods Botts uses to demonstrate the advantages of his tractor to Johnson after all are at best questionable: First he drags Johnson's house through all the city, then he even kidnaps Johnson in the tractor and drives him through a minefield ... which at the end does the trick, and Johnson gets tractors after all, and Botts gets Mabel after Sally has dumped him anyways ...


One one hand, Earthworm Tractors is of course one of these cute but pointless 1930's comedies, and even Joe E.Brown's performance as loud-mouthed fast-talking salesman grows stale after a while. What makes this film special though is its many scenes of utter destruction, with the tractor running pretty much over everything, including a few cars and explosions. All of these scenes are done for real though, no model work included ... which makes this film just beautiful !!!
