In this breezy comedy, a young associate (Glenn Ford) at a Montana law firm is trapped in an all-work/no credit grind until his tipsy spouse (Ruth Roman) gets him canned, creating the “opportunity” to pack up the clan and try to strike it rich in the land of L.A. Law. Unfortunately, he still needs to pass the California bar. So, what’s a young man to do but loan his last dollar to a provocatively named chanteuse (Dorianne Gray, played by Denise Darcel) and become study-buddies with the enchanting Joyce Laramie (Nina Foch). Soon after, his wife "accidentally" takes a bet for the ex-bookie who used to live in their cheap apartment, and life leads our young man to court where he has to plead for his life. Mitchell Leisen directs.
