Fields is a dentist whose daughter is threatening to run away with her boyfriend. He eventually has to lock her up in an upstairs room, above his dental office, where she proceeds to stamp her feet, causing chunks of the plaster ceiling to fall as Fields attempts to treat one of his patients. There are a number of very funny moments as various patients come to the office, particularly when Fields proceeds to drill without any pain killer. With one of his women patients, he engages in a virtual wrestling match as he attempts to extract a painful tooth. Some of his comments are quite salty and it's clear that the studio deleted some of it.
There is also a very funny sequence on the golf course, where Fields has opportunities to utilize elements of the famous golf routine he developed for the Ziegfeld Follies. History The Follies were lavish Revues something between later Broadway shows and a more elaborate high class Vaudeville Variety show.
