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.

A good portion of this film's plot involves Lucille Ball
traveling across the country in a mobile trailer. Earlier that year (1938), Ball also spent much of her screen time inside of a mobile trailer in the film Go Chase Yourself
(1938). Later, in one of her better-known film roles, she starred in yet another mobile trailer-themed film in The Long, Long Trailer
(1953). See more
