The always funny Lightner and her pal Delroy play a pair of shop clerks. They're out for some better times and go searching for rich gentlemen to keep them in the opulence they feel suits them. They chase two men named Smith (Whiting and Davidson), one poor and one rich. The trail takes

them to Havana for a rousing comical finish. This is an amusing film in the GOLD DIGGERS tradition with some fine comic performances by Lightner and Judels. But the film suffered from some severe cutting. Originally it was filmed as a musical, but the genre was beginning to lose popularity at the

time of release. Consequently the studio pared out many songs and production numbers, leaving only "Can It Be Possible?" (Sidney Mitchell, Archie Gottler, Joseph Mayer), "One Robin Doesn't Make a Spring," and "Somehow" (Frederick Loewe, Earle Crooker). This was also one of the first

all-Technicolor films.
