Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This characteristically free-wheeling Greg LaCava production was based on The Man From Mexico, a play by Harry A. Douchet. Richard Dix stars as razzmatazz college football hero Billie Dexter, who lives to party -- until he meets demure Mary Corbin (Lois Wilson). Certain that Mary is just another "jazz baby," Billie's dad (Joseph Kilgour) orders him to stay away from her, sending him out of town to entertain an important business client, Bible salesman J. W. Smith. Imagine Billie's dismay when "Mr." Smith turns out to be a high-stepping old lady (Edna May Oliver) with a fondness for liquor. As it turns out, however, Ms. Smith is the fairy godmother who ultimately brings Billie and Mary together again.
