Departing from its usual fare of westerns, melodramas, and horror movies, the low-rent studio Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC) produced this quirky cromedy. In keeping with the crime-comedy genre, audiences must accept a silly premise. Bereaved by the death of his mob boss, a smart crook realizes he does not have the leadership credibility to take over a ring of extortionists. In a general store in a far-flung whistle stop, he finds the long-lost son of the dead boss and installs him as the head of a dummy insurance company. A yokel who looks like a “harmless bewildered baby,” the son unwittingly plays a perfect front-man and fall-guy for the crooks.
Hijinks ensue when clueless Baby Face sells victimized business owners racketeer insurance. He ends up paying off claims to customers with the same money that the shake-down artists have squeezed out of them. The rube falls for a beautiful client. Inevitably, the cute couple find themselves in trouble with both snarling detectives and knuckle-headed crooks.
Running jokes and sight gags move the story along in a natural way. Gags involve goofy crime slang, dumb crooks, and, in a peculiar touch, multiplying rabbits. It doesn’t set any standards for spoofs, but this light, short movie will shake a viewer out of a glum mood.
