Description by OLDIES.com:

It's all aboard for comedy as down-and-out Marie Truffle (Marie Dressler) and her rambunctious brood take the train from South Bend to sophisticated Manhattan. There, Marie gets a job in the slimming spa owned by her successful sister (frequent Dressler co-star Polly Moran) and untangles the romantic knots created by four headstrong young lovers. From snappy start to warm Thanksgiving Day finish, Reducing is a delight as Dressler wrestles with the indignities visited upon a large woman in a small upper berth, explores the mysteries of electric reducing belts or dumps Sis in a mudbath. Enjoy the unmatched screen charisma that made this decidedly unglamorous actress Hollywood's #1 star in the early 1930s.

Product Description:

In this slapstick comedy set in a posh beauty salon, the owner asks her matronly sister, a postman's wife, to come and visit. She does, and brings her lovely daughter along with her. This creates problems when the fiancé of the owner's daughter falls in love with the daughter of her sister. Fortunately, it is revealed that the man is a grade-A cad and both of the girls are saved.
