This fast paced
farce concerns a con artist (Eric) who lost
his job two years ago, is afraid to tell his
wife, and has been defrauding the welfare authorities
with every possible trick and collecting thousands
in welfare payments. One day Jenkins (a government
employee) comes by to check up on how all these
benefits can be paid to the same address. Then
other government employees show up. Eric creates
stories for his wife, the government workers
and enlists help from his upstairs lodger, Norman,
and his Uncle George to participate in his deceptions.
There is cross dressing, a dead body, and mistaken
identities. Nabbed in the end, Eric confesses
and instead of jail time gets an offer from
the government to work for them because he knows
all the tricks!
