The two-man Laurel and Hardy Zoot Suit Band find themselves fronting a scam for "gasolene pills" in wartime oil-short America. They are however soon on the side of the angels helping recover $10,000 for an attractive young lady whose family have themselves been swindled.
Hubert Wilkins (Stuart Erwin), a bookkeeper for Mr. Bates (Thurston Hall) by day and an air raid warden by night, patrols the district where his boss' warehouse is located, and finds two employees removing raw silk stocks. They say they are working under Bates' orders and brush him off. Hubert wants to marry Emily Conway (Elelyn Venable), company secretary, but can't see how he can afford it since he has loaned a salesman, Fuller (Chick Chandler), $400 with deeds to four lots as security. Don Bates (William T. Orr), son of the boss, is engaged to Emily's sister Sally (Vivian Blaine) though his father disapproves. He and Emily encourage Sally and Don to elope. Hubert, a little tipsy, buys two more lots from Fuller and goes to Bates' home and asks for a raise. He is fired and, the next morning, Emily also for helping Don to elope. Hubert discovers that the lots he bought are worth $100,000 and, unknown to Bates, buys the company. While on warden duty that night, he discovers that the two employees he previously saw taking silk from the warehouse are actually stealing it.

Cinematography (feature film)
Forty-year-old Andy Stitzer has done quite a few things in his life. He''s got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good friends, a nice attitude. But there''s just one little thing he hasn''t quite gotten around to doing yet--something most people have done by this age. Done a lot. Andy''s never, ever, ever had sex--not even by accident. So is that such a big deal? Well, for Andy''s buddies at the store, it sure is. Although they think he''s a bit of an oddball, there''s certainly a planetful of stranger (and homelier) guys who''ve at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help Andy out of his dire situation and go to great lengths to help him. But nothing proves effective enough to lure their friend out of lifelong chastity until he meets Trish, a 40-year-old mother of three. Andy''s friends are psyched by the possibility that "it" may finally happen--until they hear that Andy and Trish have begun their relationship based on a mutual no-sex policy.
