Ann and Joe are now engaged, and she wants Joe to retire now that he's the heavyweight champ. Meanwhile, Ann's mother is determined that she not marry outside the family's society standing, and tries to match her with a Count. But the Count's really after the Howe money, and Ann's father works with Joe and Knobby to expose him for what he is.

7th episode in the "Joe Palooka" series, and Shemp's last for Vitaphone. After production of this short subject, Shemp moved to the west coast and spent the next nine years as a character actor at Columbia, Universal and Monogram, including his own series of shorts at Columbia.

Shemp received $1500 for this costarring role.

The Palooka series continued for two more films, without Shemp, before Warner Brothers closed the Brooklyn/Queens Vitaphone studio facility.
