Plot Summary

Dick Wallace is a free-wheeling playboy adverse to working in his workaholic father's office and resisting his advice about the evils of wine, women, and song. He accidentally meets, falls in love with, and elopes with Marion Hall, a respectable, attractive ministers's granddaughter he meets at a gas station but his father assumes she's a gold-digger. When she comes to the senior Wallace's office, he hires her as his secretary and continue to resist young Dick's request that he meet his new wife, a situation that results in some awkward and amusing complications.

Goofs When Dick and Marion first meet at the gas station she is by the rear left fender of his car, talking to the attendant on the other side, yet when Dick adjusts the rear view mirror we see Marion's full face instead of a left profile. Then Marion turns her back on the mirror, but when Dick adjusts it downward, we see the front of Marion's feet and legs instead of the back. Only when the camera backs off does Marion turn around and face Dick and the mirror. See more »
