See America Thirst is a 1930 American comedy film produced and distributed by Universal Pictures and directed by William James Craft. Silent comics Harry Langdon and Slim Summerville star along with silent actress Bessie Love. Though released late in 1930, it nevertheless had a silent version.[2][3]

In the film, Bessie Love introduced the type of sandals later known as "flip-flops" to American audiences.[citation needed] The title is a parody of the Cole Porter musical See America First.

Plot

Slim (Summerville) and Wally (Langdon) are mistaken for hired killers, and are paid to murder a bootlegger. They encounter nightclub singer Ellen (Love), associated with the district attorney's office, who assists them in convincing the gang leader to pay them double for protection. Everything goes well until the actual hired killers show up.[2][4][5][6]
