~Plot Synopsis~
This ordinary romantic programmer starred Universal regulars Norman Kerry and Virginia Valli. Linnie
Randall, a shopgirl (Valli), is bored with her humdrum life. Her complaints are overheard by the wealthy
Garry Schuyler (Kerry), who is disguised as a mechanic. He asks her out to dinner and, to her delight, he
calls in a limousine. The two of them wind up spending a whirlwind week together and marry at the end
of it. Their happiness is ruined, however, when Schuyler's aristocratic mother (Kate Lester, who died
before the film's release) returns from Florida and loudly voices her disapproval of her new
daughter-in-law. She makes life so miserable for Linnie that she runs away. She is accidentally hit by
Garry's car and taken to the hospital. He believes she is dead, and comes down with "brain fever." His
mother takes him to Europe, while Linnie recovers and gives birth to his son. Linnie becomes a famous
dancer, and when Garry returns and finds her still alive, they are reunited.
