Synopsis

On leaving Paramount studios after a string of successful and critically-acclaimed screwball comedies, director Preston Sturges teamed up with Harold Lloyd, an actor famous for his silent films, to make this wacky comedy. Lloyd stars as Harold Diddlebock, someone who's been stuck in the same job for over 20 years. When he gets fired, he goes to a bar where the barman invents a cocktail just for him - the Diddlebock. This causes the super-straight Harold to lose all his inhibitions and go on a crazy day-and-a-half spree - the outrageous results of which he has to deal with the next day...
