In this comedy of mistaken identity, a bookish literary reviewer bows to the desires of his lover and shaves off his whiskers. Suddenly he finds himself in trouble, for without the mustache, he is the spitting image of a gangster who has just been released from prison. When the mobster’s gang sees the reviewer, they immediately assume he is the boss and they take him away. Soon he finds himself in deep trouble.
