Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This comedy is based on the enduring radio series and chronicles the attempts of an airplane riveter to find a better paying, less physically taxing job. Chester A. Riley gets his chance when his employer's son falls in love with Riley's daughter. Wanting to make her father happy, the daughter, who does not really love the boss's son, agrees to be his wife if her father can be promoted to an executive. This happens and the reluctant but honorable young woman prepares to become a bride until Riley finds out and sets things right.
