Description by OLDIES.com:
Everyone in a small resort town thinks Rollo Smith is famed aviator Robert Story. That's fine with Rollo, who's actually a penniless newspaperman bounced from his job. Doe-eyed cuties want to be near him. Stalwart men celebrate him. And all Rollo has to do is compete in the upcoming aviation contest. But an airplane and Buckingham Palace are one and the same to Rollo: he's never been in either. Wide-mouthed Joe E. Brown plays Rollo in a chipper comedy whose set pieces include Rollo's self-devised aerial training (using a teetering Murphy bed, a vacuum cleaner, an electric fan - it's all in the seeing, not the telling.) William A. Seiter (Sons of the Desert) directs this wild tale of a fish out of water who takes to the skies.
In this comedy, a luckless newspaper reporter heads for a coastal resort and finds himself mistaken for a famous dare-devil pilot by two gorgeous girls. Though he knows, better, he willingly does nothing to deny it. Rollicking trouble follows when he discovers that someone is trying to kill the pilot. Unfortunately, when he finally does tell the truth, no one believes him and that is when the fun really begins.
