Brown is an unsatisfied office clerk who adds some excitement to his life when he pretends to be a millionaire, borrows his girlfriend's father's speedboat, and is the first to cross the finish line in a big race. It's all done on a slapstick level which is sure to draw a laugh out of most

viewers. For its time, the dialog is rather risque; the film risked censorship by the six states that then had review committees. At its premiere, the picture featured the use of an early wide-screen process for the boat-race sequence. It includes some fine race footage as well as the following

tunes: "Goodness Gracious," "I'll Know and She'll Know," "Keep Your Undershirt On," "What Would I Care," "Sweeter Than You" (Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby), "As Long as I Have You and You Have Me" (Al Dubin, Joe Burke), and "Reaching For the Moon" (Irving Berlin).
