This British musical comedy is based on a German play and tells the story of Nicholas Baumann, an ambitious representative of a US company who plies his trade in his native Vienna. When he learns that his American employer, Mr. Brown, is coming to Vienna, Baumann hopes that he will become a partner in the successful company. Just before he comes, Baumann and his wife have a big fight and she leaves him. He then recruits his secretary, Anne Weber, to pose as his wife. Naturally, that is a big mistake and mayhem ensues. In the end, the secretary ends up in the arms of the American while Baumann becomes the new partner.
