Movie Info

Harrison Ford (no, not that Harrison Ford) plays a hypochondriac who heads to an Arizona health farm to regain his strength. En route, he meets pert Phyllis Haver, engaged to marry the sheriff in the western community where Ford is headed. She hitches a ride-an innocent gesture that leads to a mass of confusing complications-ending up with Ford being chased by every horseman in the region. The excitement "cures" Ford and serves to solidify a romance between himself and Haver. Based on a play by Owe Davis, The Nervous Wreck was later remade with Eddie Cantor as Whoopee (1930) and with Danny Kaye as Up in Arms (1944).
