"I'm riding on a cloud, baby, and I'm not giving anybody my seat."
Overworked and exhausted, Maisie (Ann Sothern) heads to Reno on a vacation. She meets a soldier on the way and hears his sob story. Once in Reno she tries to find the soldier's rich wife (Ava Gardner) to stop her from divorcing him. This proves to be more difficult than it seems and Maisie winds up investigating a plot to steal the wife's fortune. But there's always time for romance and Maisie's love interest this time is a blackjack dealer (John Hodiak).
Enjoyable eighth entry in the Maisie series. Ann Sothern's adorable as ever. She even gets to sing a song: "Panhandle Pete." Early role for Ava Gardner, who's very pretty but gets nothing to do. The running gag throughout the picture is that Maisie has developed a nervous tick from overworking and all the men think she's winking at them. It's a funny bit that never gets old, especially with the cute way Sothern sells it. A fun movie that fans of the series should enjoy. Don't forget: skittle-dee-ruff-ka-doo!
