Bellamy (Fred MacMurray) returns from action over the Pacific as a war hero and stays with Mr Meglin (Cecil Kellaway) for 2 weeks before he returns to war. However, the whole country believes that he is going to marry Peggy (Claudette Colbert) because of a transmission of what were seemingly his last words before he decided to sacrifice himself for his country. Needless to say, he didn't die and Peggy wasn't who his final message was for. It was for Piggy, his dog. Mr Meglin also has Peggy stay at his house so that she and Bellamy can be together. Do they fall for each other....?
It's a story of misunderstandings that is only worth watching if you like the main stars - MacMurray and Colbert. There are some tedious sequences, eg, the scene with the photographer and the scene in the bedroom with the judge. Unfortunately, the film doesn't redeem itself with any particularly good scenes. There is a funny scene at the end with Albert (Gil Lamb) but that's your lot. The stars are likable but the film just isn't very good.
