The Fuller Brush Girl ★★½ 1950

Lots of slapstick with Ball as a door-to-door saleswoman unexpectedly involved in a murder. She and dimbulb boyfriend Albert are chased by cops, murderers, and smugglers in this frantic farce.

Lucille Ball, Eddie Albert, Carl Benton Reid, Gale Robbins, Jeff Donnell, John Litel, Fred Graham, Lee Patrick; Cameos: Red Skelton; D: Lloyd Bacon; W: Frank Tashlin.
