A witty masquerade, fabulous dancing and a gorgeous tropical locale give this land-inspired musical an exotic appeal. Handsome movie heartthrob Brooks Mason (Robert Young) is tired of being besieged by adoring fans. When he meets his exact double, a shy Hawaiian plantation owner named George Smith (also played by Young), they decide to switch for a month. While Mason blissfully sails off to Hawaii he meets and falls in love with a beautiful dancer (Eleanor Powell) – but when he arrives in Honolulu he finds Smith's fiancée Cecilia, who's ready to marry. Meanwhile, poor Smith has been sent to a New York hospital, thanks to overzealous fans. Two women and one crazy scheme add up to double trouble for Mason, and all of a sudden the game's no fun…until Smith's grinning houseboy, Wong, gets a bright idea. The unique comedy of George Burns and Gracie Allen add to the fun in this hilarious tale of mistaken identities and true love.
