Synopsis:
Sent to the city by his stuffy father to reign in the womanising ways of his cousin Keith (James Ellison), young university professor Peter Morgan (James Stewart) falls in love with nightclub performer Francey Brent (Ginger Rogers) and marries her after a whirlwind romance. When he goes back home, he can't bring himself to tell his conservative, ultra-respected family or his bitchy ex-fiancee Helen, about it. To avoid revealing the news abruptly to his ailing mother (Beulah Bondi), Peter passes her off as Keith's girl, and stashes her at his cousin's apartment.
At a college dance where the professor intends to introduce Francey to all, Helen (Frances Mercer), who's sniffed out the truth, initiates a vicious cat fight, and anarchy reigns. Stewart and Rogers make an appealing couple, and the supporting cast is outstanding, with amusing turns by Bondi and Grady Sutton.
