Marcia Mae Jones,
Barbara "Babs" Penfield is trying to convince her father, laundry-magnate F. Thorndyke Penfield, to invest money in a proposition from her sweetheart Rodney Randall. Her father refuses as he knows Randall is a fortune hunter, as did any 30's audience once Bradley Page appeared on the scene. While Penfield hurries out to award the Penfield Prize for Service at his laundry, Babs, finding her allowance has been stopped by her father, tries to sell her car to raise cash to give to Randall. While Babs is talking to the car dealer in his shop, "Con" Cornelius, just out of jail, sells the car, pockets the cash and makes a getaway. The car is bought by Jerry Bassett, who has just won the Penfield $1,000 Service and has quit his job at the laundry. (So much for service awards.) Jerry drives his flashy car to the Royal Valley, a swanky resort, where Randal is awaiting financial help from Barbara. Jerry meets Barbara on the road and gives her a lift to the hotel, thinking she is on her way there...Written by

Go pleasantly back to the '30s with Evelyn Knapp and the gang
I just want to give this little movie a warm mention, as I found it to be a bright piece of fun with careful and consistent characterizations by especially Richard Carle as the laundry tycoon and the well-presented and appealing Evelyn Knapp as his daughter. Those two actors even fittingly display similarly unusual voice patterns in their performances. The movie's settings, whether indoors or out of doors, and the costuming and vehicles in view give a glimpse into what the world of the 1930s was like for some folks at that time. The movie just has kind of a clean and good-natured look and feel to it and this watcher felt as though he took a trip back to that time for a while. No mistaking that it is a B-picture, I enjoyed the film quite a lot.
