You can't cheat an honest man.
It's a gift (Motion picture)
My little chickadee: "The reputation of voluptuous Flowerbelle Lee (West) is tarnished when she is seen embracing a masked bandit in her bedroom. Forced to leave town until she can return married and respectable, Flowerbelle boards a train where she meets the incorrigible Guthbert J. Twillie (Fields) and soon accepts his marriage proposal. The hilarious adventures continue as the newlyweds journey to the Last Gasp saloon in this rollicking romp"--Container.
You can't cheat an honest man: "W.C. Fields portrays Larson E. Whipsnade, ringmaster of the seedy circus Giganticus. Whipsnade gets nothing but trouble from his performers, and his daughter (Constance Moore) is torn between a wealthy cad and a charming ventriloquist, played by Edgar Bergen"--Container.
It's a gift: "Harold Bissonette, a bungling, henpecked grocer dreaming of California's golden sunshine. A small inheritance from his Uncle Bean tempts Bissonette to sell everything and buy an orange ranch--sight unseen. Along the way, he matches wits with dogs, children and chicken feathers, snatching success from the jaws of defeat at the last madcap minute"--Container.
International house: "When a scientist in China invents a television, everyone around the globe clamors to purchase the rights to the mesmerizing new invention"--Container.
