Average Rating:     [9.00/10]   1 votes


Reformed safecracker Aloyisius "Butch" Grogan (Broderick Crawford) regularly babysits the infant son of widow Susie O'Neill (Virginia Bruce). When his former cronies come to him with a payroll job, Butch signs on because he is the only one experienced to handle the nitroglycerin needed to blow the safe... and then realizes that it's on the same night that he babysits. He can't find a substitute sitter, and decides that the only thing he can do is take the baby with him. Complicating matters are Susie's suspicious policeman boyfriend (Dick Foran), and a curious baby with an attraction to nitroglycerin.

Shemp costars as one of the safecrackers, a myopic gangster, similar to his Gunner character in AFRICA SCREAMS (1949).
