Storyline

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 Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Entertaining musical
12 August 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It would appear from the lack of votes cast for this film that this is a very rarely seen film.Since i enjoy Cass Daley and Spike Jones i decided to buy a video copy of this film.I think that the last time i saw this was about 30 years ago on BBC2.It is a cheerful loud film with a lot of enjoyable musical numbers.Now whether you enjoy them depends upon whether you like Cass Daley or Spike Jones.Eddie Bracken plays the same bumbling hayseed that he plays in virtually all the films he made for Paramount.The plot ,such as it is ,revolves around Bracken becoming an overnight oil millionaire and going to New York to spend his money.When he receives unwelcome publicity over the radio then every girl wants to meet him and spend his money.\anyway an enjoyable 90minutes
