1920s Hollywood is the setting of this melodrama. Sneakypete Underhand, a villainous doctor, and his henchwoman, nurse Heide Bedpann, are hired to work at a silent movie studio, where Sneakypete quickly hatches a plot to kidnap a top star, Verily Speakwell. Little do they know that when talking pictures arrive, the actress has such a horrible voice her career will be doomed! Sneakypete ends up disguised as a harem dancer to fool the director, Alfred Hitchkick, and the co-stars, including Manly Jawline, a dim movie hero, and Peerless Sneer, the ham actor who plays the villain. When script girl Paige Turner stumbles onto Sneakypete's plot, the dirty doctor ties her to the studio's buzz saw, only to have her rescued by camera operator Cameron Mann! Zany action, goofy disguises, and droll asides to the audience make this 80-minute melodrama a sure-fire hit!
