There's nothing startling or arresting or even unusual about the name "Ernest" except to Henry Gilcrest. It all started when Henry's boss fires him, his girlfriend flat-out dumps him, and Aunt Ethel orders him from her house because he hadn't paid his rent. Poor, homeless, girl-less, jobless Henry spends the night in the part and meets Mr. Bumpus, to whom he pours out his troubles to. Bumpus tells Henry he has a friend names "Ernest" who for a mere $17.83 will put him out of his misery. After paying the money, Henry goes back to find all the wrongs have been righted and life is good again. Except that everyone he meets from there on out is names "Ernest". This is a rapid-fire frolic with a clever finish.
