Plot Summary

  • Based on a sketch that was in the Broadway hit "Ballyhoo", Eddie Foy Jr. is forced to join a nudist cult in order to win the girl he loves, Vera Marshe. He, especially when Vera is near, becomes somewhat distracted and being new to nudism has a hard time adapting. He grabs some foliage to conceal his lack of clothing---the only girl around that is wearing anything has on glasses--and his coverage turns out to be poison ivy, but he thinks love is causing his itch. Billy Hughes, of the Smith Brothers team and Ralph Sanford are also involved, as is singer Dorothy Dare.
