Yarn recounts the adventures of a prosperous continental soap manufacturer (Frank Morgan) who wins a prize in his own radio slogan contest and proceeds to sneak a fortnight’s vacation under an assumed name in a mountain winter resort. He gets into some comical scrapes, including a breach of promise suit. What starts out to be a frolic develops complications that are fresh and amusing.

Mary Astor is the adventuress who becomes the nemesis of the multimillionaire. Her acting is delightful and her good looks are accentuated by some attractive costumes. Romantic interest is furnished by Robert Young and Florence Rice.
