Plot Summary

Movie star Brooks Mason tries to avoid his fans and spend some weeks on vacation. When Hawaiian plantation owner George Smith is mistaken by Mason's fans for Mason and brought to Mason's house. They decide to exchange their identities for a few weeks. But George Smith is mobbed by Mason's fans again on a personal appearance tour in New York City, Mason falls in love with dancer Dorothy March, who also is on her way to Hawaii. Problems for Mason arise, due to the fact that Smith is engaged to Cecilia Grayson and her wealthy father believes that Smith has double-crossed him. Mason isn't able to establish a connection with Smith in New York City due to his agent's orders. Written by Stephan Eichenberg

Quotes [Millie has just spotted movie star Brooks Mason on the deck of a cruise ship]
Millie De Grasse: My dream man! I'm gonna meet him in person. And I warn you, if he makes one false move, I'm his!
Dorothy March: I suppose you think it'll do you a lot of good to throw yourself at him.
Millie De Grasse: Throw myself at him? If I thought it would do any good, I'd have myself shot at him out of a cannon!
