Synopsis:
Humphrey 'Sorrowful' Jones (Bob Hope), a shifty Broadway bookie, becomes a reluctant foster parent when an anxious gambler leaves behind his 5-year-old girl Martha Jane (Mary Jane Saunders) as a 'marker'. When the father is killed by mobster 'Big Steve' Holloway (Bruce Cabot), Sorrowful decides to hide Martha Jane from the authorities, lest the poor girl get tossed in an orphanage. With the help of his girlfriend Gladys (Lucille Ball), Humphrey will realize that taking care of a child interferes with his free-wheeling lifestyle... But will he reform?
