Synopsis by Janiss Garza
During the 1920s, Reginald Denny was popular in pictures for portraying all-American young men (this changed after the sound era revealed his British accent). He plays Thomas Berford, who inherited his father's business and has made a huge success of it. The only competitor who remains uncowed is George Stone (Tyrone Power Sr.). Stone becomes really furious when his daughter Alicia (Marion Nixon) becomes engaged to Berford. Trouble brews for the young businessman when a girl, Claire (Pauline Garon), shows up and claims that he married her on January 9, 1923. Berford is desperate to prove her wrong and, with his secretary Henry (Lee Moran), goes on a mad chase to track down the only man who has a record of his whereabouts on that day. During the search, Berford grabs the wrong briefcase by mistake and discovers it is loaded with money. His search is a failure and he goes home, only to be faced once again with Claire. Then Alicia shows up and Berford scrambles to hide the two women from each other. Finally, the police and Alicia's father converge on Berford's house. When Claire finds out that Berford is in love with Alicia she admits that she was hired by Stone to cause trouble. The money Berford took turns out to be his own, and in the midst of all the confusion, Alicia calls on a minister and marries her man.
