The adventures of wisecracking telephone repairmen Terry and Johnny are by turns comic, risque, and heroic. Terry pursues Marie, a hotel switchboard operator, who loses her job when she innocently does a favor for gangster Nicky. Terry gets Marie a job with financier Schuyler; but Nicky has new plans for her.

A true mark that this is a Pre-Code film is when Pat O'Brien after completing a repair in what appears to be a bordello; slaps a female "resident" on the backside. Men casually slapping women on the behind was common misbehavior in pre-code films. See more
Terry's boss Joe Flood infers that Terry has a habit of slapping female telephone subscribers (customers) on the backside and that it was unacceptable and would be dismissed if he does it again. Even in the 1930s, this sort of behavior may make Terry come off more like a pervert than a romantic hero, therefore, turning off an audience and possibly jeopardizing a film's success. It was these types of characterizations that led to the creation of a motion picture code. See more
