Millionaire Walter Connolly, shunned by his family on his birthday, meets Ginger Rogers in Central Park. After a night club celebration, he hires her to pose as a golddigger, and takes her to his Fifth Avenue mansion.

Sock laughs are supplied by situations and surprise dialog. Rogers, bewildered by her sudden catapult into a swank home, carries it all off with a blankness that accentuates her characterization. Connolly deftly handles the assignment of the prosperous manufacturer.

Production is distinctly a La Cava achievement. In motivation, its unfolding lies between the wacky My Man Godfrey and the more serious Stage Door.
