SYNOPSIS

Ginger Stewart and Carter are in love even though they know nothing about each other except their first names. Ginger thinks her boyfriend is a chauffeur, and he only knows that she is charming.

Time is of the essence because in a few weeks a state law prohibiting breach of promise suits will be enacted. Dixie and Ginger successfully serve papers to nightclub singer Phil Logan, gangster Leonidus Giovanni "Butch" Gonzola and wrestler Man Mountain Dean. Meanwhile, Courtney's lawyer, Stephen Dinsmore, convinces him to leave on a cruise until the new law goes into effect.

As soon as he discovers the truth, Homer sends for the women. Ginger pretends to be drowning near the yacht and is rescued by some of the crew. When Dinsmore accuses her of being a gold digger, Ginger angrily serves Courtney his subpoena. Eventually, they reconcile and return to shore to be married, but Dixie meets them at the dock and presents Courtney with another subpoena. Thinking that Ginger planned it, Courtney angrily leaves her behind. During his trial, Courtney agrees to marry Claire. Then Ginger ... +
