Quick Overview

Starring Leo Carrillo, Mary Carlisle, Lynne Overman, George Barbier,

Spring Byington, Benny Baker

Directed by Arthur Archainbaud



Print: black/white

Runtime: 66 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



The inimitable Preston Sturges originally scripted Hotel Haywire with

George Burns and Gracie Allen in mind, but by the time the film went

before the cameras, the Burns and Allen roles had been recast with

Benny Baker and Colette Lyons -- and significantly abbreviated in the

process. A dentist named Parkhouse (Lynne Overman) plays a practical

joke on a poker-playing buddy by sending him home with a lady's chemise

stuffed in his coat pocket. The gag backfires, whereupon Parkhouse finds

himself in hot water with his own wife (Spring Byington). Threatened with

divorce, Parkhouse is advised by a zany astrologer to frame Mrs. P. in a

compromising situation at the Hotel Haywire, enlisting amateur detectives

Bert and Genevieve Sterns (Baker and Lyons) in his scheme. Things get

really hectic when Parkhouse's daughter Phyllis (Mary Carlisle) and her

sweetheart Frank (John Patterson) show up at the same hotel. The film is

dominated by the antics of larcenous astrologer Zodiac Z. Zippe, played

with comic ferocity by Leo Carrillo.
