Artist Jimmy Hudson (Cary Grant) is stuck in Mexico unable to pay his hotel bill. Meanwhile, Louise Fuller (Grace Moore) opera singer is stuck in the same town unable to return to the US due to visa problems. The solution, Hudson agrees to marry Fuller, in return for which she pays him $2,000, which allows her to return to New York to resume her opera career. Hudson and Fuller continue to meet and trade barbs, but it clear they are falling for each other. A highlight is when Fuller joins a 5 piece band to sing "Minnie the Moocher", the Cab Calloway signature number. True love appears to be thwarted by Fuller's career obligations and divorce papers are exchanged. But in the end love is triumphant! Written by

Don't bother watching this awful excuse for a movie
As a Cary Grant fan I wanted to learn more about his track record leading up to 'North by Northwest' which is why I watched this film. Don't waste your time. It is not a movie, it is a poorly made excuse to add to Grant's credit list. It fails to provide any interesting characters or engaging storyline. The script is poorly written and it is poorly directed. No wonder it hasn't stood the test of time. Grant is not convincing as a tough guy pushing people around. Nobody would put up with him today. It has shades of him acting tough in 'Mr. Lucky', but nowhere near the quality of 'The Last Outpost' or 'My Favourite Wife'. It's fair to say that most of Grant's 1930s films weren't very good.
