On the lam after shooting an informant, hood Humphrey Bogart blackmails musician Jeffrey Lynn into holing him up at his mom's theatrical boarding house. When Bogart learns that the kindly old girl's behind on her taxes, he rallies the home's talented, if chronically unemployable, residents to turn the place into a money-making nightspot. Infectious oddball farce co-stars Ann Sheridan, ZaSu Pitts, Una O'Connor. 97 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
