An ordinary comedy that blatantly took much from THE LADY EVE, it was a disappointment when one considers all the excellent talent recruited for the film. Mamoulian had a three-picture agreement with Zanuck at Fox that included his stellar work on THE MARK OF ZORRO, followed by BLOOD AND

SAND. This was the final film of that deal and suffered by comparison. Byington and Cregar are two con artists in search of a millionaire to bilk. They enlist the aid of Tierney, an attractive sales clerk, and plan to use her to ensnare their prey. Fonda is a poor accountant on vacation in

Southern California. He's saved up a bundle to buy a sailboat, and, when Byington and Cregar hear him talking about boats, they think they have a dupe. Tierney's job is to get Fonda to fall in love with her so she can gull him out of his supposed wealth, but she's far too honest for this kind of

work and decides that she can't be part of the plan. Add that to her growing love for Fonda, and it's easy to see the best laid plans go out the window. The two leads confess the truth to each other and get married, but Cregar and Byington are not done yet and try to split the couple by finding

Tierney a real millionaire. A trivial picture that looks better than it actually is because of Fonda's comic timing and Tierney's radiant presence.
