Storyline

Heiress Nancy Crocker Fleming will only receive her inheritance if she marries a "plain American." Her late father was afraid a foreign gigolo would steal her heart and money. So Nancy pays Tony Anthony, working on a WPA road project, to marry, then divorce her. When Nancy inadvertently drives off with Tony's dog, Tony seemingly kidnaps her to retrieve the pooch, which leads to a cross-country race between the two to reach Reno and the divorce court since neither one wants to be the second to file papers.

pleasant fluff
7 January 2006 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

heiress lucille ball has to marry a 'plain American' to get her inheritance. already engaged to fortune hunter boyfriend lee bowman(is he really a count, who knows)she engages road worker james ellison, who is prepared to marry her for a certain summe of money...

not an unusual plot for a 30's screwball comedy..

one of few early films with lucille ball that i saw, i didn't expect a laughing riot (never liked her later TV persona much)but i was pleasantly surprised by this one.

the plot is funny and has a good tempo, lucille gives a good performance as an hysterical heiress, james ellison is a delight(never noticed him in any other movies though)and overall this movie amused me enough to catch it a second time..(which isn't that easy since its not commercially available) recommended
