In this romance, a none-too-bright sailor (Victor McLaglen) takes a trip to Paris, not realizing he had just won the multi-million dollar prize in a horse lottery. The lotto officials send an agent (Ed Brendel) to find the young sailor and deliver his prize, but he runs away believing he was merely eluding a detective. Despite his constant attempts to escape what he believes to be the law, he does manage to fall in love with a beautiful woman named Polly (Polly Moran). Eventually the agent catches up to him and all is well. Songs include: "Sweet Nothings Of Love," "Look Into My Eyes, Baby," "If You Want To See Paree," and the comedy tune "I'm the Duke of Kakiyak."
