Local racketeer Speedy Miller (Broderick Crawford) takes over Mr. Amalfi's (Leo Carrillo) shoe store and turns it into a backroom gambling parlor, and buys himself a pair of too-small shoes... tight shoes, that set off a chain reaction of misfortune. Miller loses a gambling bet for his boss "The Brain," the secret identity of newspaper publisher Horace Grover, and then loses his girlfriend actress Sybil Ash. Jimmy Rupert, the clerk who sold Miller the tight shoes, exposes the shoe store's gambling operation and winds up running against Grover's city councilman stooge Honest John Beebe. Miller is held accountable and loses his position in "The Brain's" operation, and Grover begins setting up a new stooge with Rupert. When Rupert winds up engaged to Sybil, Miller arranges a little revenge... with his own gift of "tight shoes" for the prospective groom.

This is an amusing film, even if Shemp has an extremely limited dialogue ("Oh-oh-oh-kay!") Broderick Crawford is pretty funny in his role as a gangster with a major foot problem.

Average, but fun, Universal B comedy with Broderick Crawford playing off Shemp Howard.
