Peterson Price Porterhouse III (Eddie Bracken)) and Nancy Crane (Priscilla Lane), both flat broke, meet on a Florida beach and decide to "go for the big money," under the premise that perception will turn into reality. They crash into several big houses, pretending they are in the market for an estate, and are soon, although still penniless, living in the best hotel in town, throwing lavish parties and mingling with the upper crust. This is too good to last, but may have anyway if true love hadn't reared its ugly head. Written by

Fun and energetic. This is a fun watch with some great comedy!
I have read some less than favorable remarks regarding this film but have to say that I disagree if for no other reason that the two leads make this plot a pleasure to watch develop. Eddie Bracken is great as the understated 'idea man' and Priscilla Lane is well...Priscilla Lane. Screwball Comedy is generally a hit or miss undertaking that every viewer basically decides for themselves. This film is no exception. If you can 'buy in' to the premise that these two financially challenged misfits can take their meager means and attempt to snowball them into a life of wealth and privilege, then you will enjoy this crazy adventure of posers and pomposity.
