There's One Born Every Minute

Directed by Harold Young
1942    60m    Not Rated
The advertising slogans of Jimmy Hanagan (Tom Brown) and the lab reports reveal that the patented prepared pudding invented by Lemuel P. Twine (Hugh Herbert) has a treasure of Vitamin Z and is full of Zumf. Lemuel's daughter, Helen Barbara Twine (Peggy Moran) is in love with Jimmy, but her mother, Minerva (Catherine Doucet), wants her to marry Lester Cadwalader, Jr. (William Henry), son of Lester Cadwalader, Sr. (Guy Kibbee), political boss of the city, and mentor and whip of Mayor Moe Carson (Edgar Kennedy). Cadwalader is backing Twine for Mayor even though he knows he can't win, as he wants to keep a stronger candidate out of the running. But after the discovery of Zumf in Twine's pudding, Cadwalader realizes that Twine will win the election. He has Twine's pudding branded as a fake and Twine as a fraud. But Lemuel comes from a long line of fighting Twines and, as he dozes, his ancestors appear before him telling him to fight to the end.
