Synopsis: "One morning, Andersen [Skolmen] discovers that the amount of household trash he has to dispose of is more than his apartment building's receptacle can accommodate. He tries to find a waste bin in a neighboring building which has room for the offending plastic bag full of yucky stuff, but he has no success. Eventually, he tosses it over the hedge onto the street. Unfortunately for him, at that very moment a burglar's getaway car is careening down the street, pursued by the police. He is immediately in trouble with both the burglars and the police and must somehow handle this situation clad initially in only his bathrobe, as he had set out to get rid of the garbage before dressing. In this comedy, Andersen is a model of cool unflappability, despite the absurd situations he finds himself in. (Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide)"
