Powell and Blondell, who teamed successfully in so many musicals for Warner Bros., shifted studios for this cute comedy. The two are secret spouses employed in a snobbish salon. Their couturier employer, Watson, has a strict rule: she employs only the unmarried. The undercover couple

develop a passion for progeny, but are unable to afford the associated expenses, particularly when their jobs are at hazard. Blondell's proposed pregnancy would certainly come to the fore; the shop does not deal with maternity clothes which she might model. Complications ensue when Watson's

playboy son Bowman comes to work in the salon and gets a yen for model Blondell. Irate, Powell discloses the hideous secret: he and Blondell are wed. Fired, Powell separates from Blondell and accepts a job in China. All ends well as Watson repents her harsh policy and the happy pair reunite. The

picture was put together by agent Charles K. Feldman, who bought the rights to the story from producer/director Jason and engaged his major talents, including Powell, Blondell, and the screenwriters, for a percentage of the gross (an unusual arrangement in the contract player era).
