Up Jumped The Devil (1941) [Lost Film]


A very funny and silly movie with Mantan Moreland and Shelton Brooks. They play two parolees out looking for a job. They apply and get a job on a wealthy estate as a butler and a maid. Of course, Mantan plays a big chested maid and Sheldon the butler. The plot basically involves a shady swamie trying to steal the lady of the estate's jewelry and succeeding. Enter Mantan and Shaldon to trick swamie into getting the jewelry back and having him arrested.
