Kay is a girl living in a small rural town whose life is just too dull and repetitious to bear. One night, she meets young, handsome, and rich Bob Dakin, who asks her for directions while drunk and then proceeds to take her out on a night on the town. Kay likes the stranger, and when the drunken Bob decides that they should get married, Kay hesitates little before consenting. The morning after the affair, Bob, once sober, regrets his mistake. His strict and upright parents, however, insist that the young couple pretend marriage for 6 months before divorcing, in order to avoid bad publicity. Bob resents Kay for standing in the way of him and his fiancée, Priscilla, but Kay still hopes that he'd have a change of heart. Written by
Wonderful Janet Gaynor and Robert Taylor comedy depicting the differences between the upper and middle classes of society.
Gaynor longs for a life outside of her town and Taylor represents everything that she wants. Though meeting him in an unusual way, and marrying him while he is drunk, he turns his part as a total heel when he becomes sober. Reluctantly, she agrees to stay with him for 6 months in pretending that there is wedded bliss.
We know that the picture shall be devoted to how the two will find their way to love despite there being Taylor's fiancée, nicely played by a bitchy Binnie Barnes. Despite his cruelty to his wife, Taylor shows an element of compassion in his treating of a brain injured child. Somehow that child will become the link that will bring this couple together and start Barnes packing.
