With Fields, “Babe” Kane, Elise Cavanna, Grady Sutton. Dr. Dilweg runs a neighborhood pharmacy. Hard-working, hen-pecked and harried by an aggressive wife, a dysfunctional family, and demanding clientele, Dilweg maintains his patience and a stoic optimism by imbibing frequent martinis. His family shows little appreciation for his efforts to keep his precarious business profitable by selling bootleg liquor under the counter despite the suspicions of the local sheriff.
With Fields, Elise Cavanna, Harry Watson. Cornelius O’Hair’s small town barber shop helps him get away from his nagging wife while providing him with a captive audience for his inflated tall tales about past exploits and neighborhood gossip. His ineptitude causes him to disfigure one customer with a razor and scald another while inadvertently locking a third in his steam room. He gets a chance to impress his pretty manicurist when a fleeing bank bandit comes to the shop looking for a makeover.
