Henry Haskell (Eddie Bracken), owner of a hard-scrabble farm near Badger, Oklahona, thwarted in love and through with women forever, strikes oil while digging for water and becomes a millionaire. He heads for New York, with $50,000 in his pocket, to fulfill his lifelong ambition of seeing Grant's Tomb and riding the subway. Fortune-huntress Gladys Hayden (Virginia Field) moves into rooms adjoining Henry's at his swank New York hotel. He joins a large crowd on the street and suddenly finds himself being interviewed by Jean Mitchell (Virginia Wells) on a "Streets of New York" broadcast. When Henry says he is the only millionaire from Badger, Oklahoma, Jean impulsively offers to introduce him to any listener who sends in a box-top of her sponsor's face powder. Henry invites Jean to dine at the Automat and a ride home on the subway and, since he borrows nickels from her for food and the subway, she doubts he is really a millionaire. She is unaware he couldn't get change for a $100 bill. ... Written by

This little musical starring Eddie Bracken and Cass Daley, is a harmless, but entertaining rendezvous. Eddie plays the same underdog he does in all of his early films for Paramount, and Cass Daley ploughs through with her usual stamina. The story is simple, but entertaining. Virginia Welles is a capable match, and is certainly stunning to look at. She sings the lovely "What Am I Gonna Do About You". Now see, this movie features Cass Daley pretty heavily, so your tolerance of this movie depends entirely on whether or not you can handle her humor. Personally speaking, I think she is the best thing about this movie. She sings "I'm As Ready As I'll Ever Be" and "Mama Eu Quero/My Mammy". Over all, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
