To see boxer Mickey (Malcolm 'Bud' McTaggart), son of her former love, also a boxer, fight in a tournament, Aunt Emma (Zasu Pitts) leaves her rural home and goes on a trip to the big city. Soon she makes friends with Terry (Roger Pryor), a sports reporter with aspirations to go into serious journalism and to marry his swetheart Maris (Gwen Kenyon), whom he has already stood up at the justice of peace once.

Mickey's fight though is rigged, and then, where there are boxers and rigged fights, there are gangsters, and soon enough, Aunt Emma and Terry become mixed up with rivalling gangsters Flower Henderson (Tristram Coffins) and Gus Hammond (Douglas Fowley), a few murders happen, Mickey is kidnapped and Aunt Emma is mistaken for notorious gangster Ma Parker.

Then Aunt Emma figures to free Mickey, it's actually a convenience to be mistaken for Ma Parker, and after more shootings and kidnappings, Aunt Emma and Terry actually manage to break Mickey free and have the gangsters arrested.

As a consequence, Terry gets his girl, and Aunt Emma gets Mickey, to take home with her ...

 

Even if the synopsis might sound amusing, the film is not. Firstly, the direction shows no feeling at all for comic timing, secondly most of the gangster plot fails to produce laughs, and thirdly Zasu Pitts, while quite amusing when she impersonates Ma Parker, is rather unfunny as little old lady from the country ... and she is supposed to carry the picture.
