A shy and humble little desk clerk (Walter Roderer) launches into an unexpected adventure (for him) in this modest comedy by Kurt Frueh, a comedy liberally dosed with songs. The desk clerk works in City Hall and when he is promoted to officiating at civil marriage ceremonies he is ecstatic -- that is a promotion he has only dreamed of. But woe-and-behold, just as he is marrying a bride who has actually caught his fancy, her groom opts for a resounding "No" and leaves her in the lurch at City Hall. The clerk suddenly looks like he has a chance to make his romantic daydreams come true, though he is not counting on the bride's best friend. She likes him herself and has her own plans for his future.
