Journalist Elizabeth Lane is one of the country's most famous food writers. In her columns, she describes herself as a hard working farm woman, taking care of her children and being an excellent cook. But this is all lies. In reality she is an unmarried New Yorker who can't even boil an egg. The recipes come from her good friend Felix. The owner of the magazine she works for has decided that a heroic sailor will spend his Christmas on *her* farm. Miss Lane knows that her career is over if the truth comes out, but what can she do?

When Felix (S.Z. Sakall
) first meets Yardly (Sydney Greenstreet
), he takes an immediate dislike to him and mumbles under his breath, "Fat man" and walks away. In The Maltese Falcon
(1941) Greenstreet played the role of Kasper Gutman whose code name was "Fat Man". See more
Yardley tells Sloan that Elizabeth's rival at another magazine has announced she is going to have a baby, and Yardley states that they have to beat her to the punch, as they will surely lose readership. Even Yardley can't do anything about nature- it still takes nine months to have a baby, so it would be impossible, even if Elizabeth conceived on the first night of marriage. Additionally, if they actually managed to have the baby before the woman at the rival magazine, it would naturally appear that Elizabeth had conceived before she was married. See more
